Just wanted to exploring more in the SLR digital world. One question or complaint from many digital-cams owners was the time taken to acquire an image (or some call it shutter-latency) after the photographer press the shutter-release is longer than a film camera.

I understand that this problem is more severe in the non-SLR digicams but what about the SLR digicams: particularly, the higher end ones, like the D1X and D1H? Did you guys experience any latency longer than, say, your Nikon F5?

Just a recap: for a film camera,
shutter-latency = time of mirror-flip + focal-plane movement

Looks like for digicams,
shutter-latency = time of mirror-flip + focal-plane movement + time for CCD to acquire data

How true is this in your experience? Please share.
