Yes, the E10/20 shutter lag is as short as many film slrs.

sad feeling that we are in for a dissapointment. I have no facts, but just a
hunch, that this will be an advanced amateur camera. Even if it has
interchangeable lenses and a great multi spot metering system, the proof in
the pudding will be in how long the shutter release lag time is, and what
the burst rate will be. Every Digital camera that I have used with the
exception of the AP digital cameras, the Nikon D1's and the Kodak/Cannon's
have an unacceptable shutter release lag. Pressing the shutter can sometimes
seem like using the self timer. I am currently testing a Nikon Coolpix 5000.
It's an amazing imaging tool, with a nice big 5 megapixel chip. Press the
shutter, wait for it to focus, and then wait for it to make the "exposure".
It's too slow for most photogrpahy involving moving subjects. Its great for
a lot of other things.
