It is going to get TAPTAP'd with a hammer soon.
To turn it on requires holding the power button for 1 second, but the lag to power up is just 1-2 seconds. To take a photo, the AF can usually lock onto an object and be ready to snap in 0.5-1.5 seconds. In good lighting, you can almost always take a photo in less then 1 second from focus to picture....in dark situations, it can take 1-1.5 seconds to find a focus point.

There are lots of cameras with better response, but this one can get covered in sand, mud, and rinsed off in water, which sold me.
