How is it, really? Under varying applications, like right after zooming, or making other adjustments? I shoot musicians in low or badly colored light from afar (no flash allowed), and as they move, my Olympus 10X is too slow to execute the shot when I click (not to mention the lack of stabilizing...).

Huge thanks to Messrs Keller, Zim et al for the timely and exhaustive info here and on their sites!!!

As long as you make a habit of preparing the camera for the shot by depressing the shutter button half-way when you've got it all lined up... there is almost no lag to speak of. There has never once been a time when I've been "burned" by the shutter lag on the FZ20... and believe me, I've been burned by a couple of my previous digitals.

Of course, if you don't depress the shutter button half-way first... and you just try to fire off a shot instantly... you will notice some lag time. But this is true of all digital cameras, I do believe.
