    I've read in various places, most prominently the image resource review of the E-PL1, that it takes forever for the image just shot to show up on the LCD. IR cites 3.5 secs which is longer than it takes a Canon G11. Many people seem to have turned off image review altogether, a workaround of sorts. The introduction of the recent revised firmware did not mention improving on this lag.

    I wonder if any of you have been able to compare any of the PENs' behaviour wrt image review lag to one of the Panasonics'?

    Just did a quick un-scientific test on my G1 - it's "one mississippi" before an image appears. So a little over a second.

    It depends on how I think on how fast the the SD card is too. I think the faster the SD card is, the faster the review time.
