For all intents and purposes there really isn't any "shutter lag" in dSLRs today. At least not the kind experienced by P&S users who sometimes need a calendar or an hour glass to measure it.
I will admit though that having spent a week in July shooting with a MkIII on one shoulder and a 5D Classic on the other, "action" shots with the 5D did actually take a little bit of anticipation.
Well, it's nothign like a P&S . But, for action like volleyball, the 50D barely cuts it with the shutter lag time imo. The 1DmkIIn was nice in that regard . And switching back and forth between the 20D and 1DmkIIn, where the lag time difference was nearly double, was a nightmare.
It just seems that Canon dropped the ball a little on this spec...
