That puts it about even with the 30D in terms of shutter responsiveness and slower than the 40/50D. So, a bit of a step backwards for action shooters in this respect.
Note: D300 shutter lag time = .045s, which puts it in the same league as the 1DmkII/1DmkIIn...
Edit: I have changed the line above to reflect the Nikon D300, as I originally intended. Sorry for the confusion
So let me understand this fully.
You're unhappy that the 7D has a shutter lag of 0.064s. Which is even with the 30D, but slower than the 40/50D. According to Imaging-Resource, 40D clocks in at 0.062s. 50D clocks in at 0.063s.
So just so I understand this clearly. Your gripe is that it is 0.002s slower than the 40D, and 0.001s slower than the 50D, so therefore, it makes it significantly inferior based on these measured times?
Sure, if 0.001% of the world's population can perceive 0.015s. But how many can perceive 0.002s?
