X-M1 shutter lag - only due to AF?

Hey, X-M1 users - I keep hearing about shutter lag. How is it when in manual focus mode?

I'm considering a cheap X-M1 with the 24/8 fixed focus toy lens for an everyday fun camera.

I did pick up an X-M1 body. My 24/8 isn't here yet, but when I set the body to MF there is minimal shutter lag. Yay!

Without a lens maybe there is no shutter lag, but with a Fuji lens there is a shutter lag unless you half-press the shutter before taking a photo.
Even in manual mode the camera needs to change aperture to give you the the right exposure. Maybe if i lock the exposure there will be no lag.

It shouldn't be a problem with the 24/8, though - there's no electrical connection with that lens.

I'll play around with my 35/2 WR and see how it behaves.

I was looking at the X70 for a carry everywhere camera and if you turn off AF the shutter delay times VERY low.

I like the X70 as the lens does not extend out from the camera when it's on.

Let me know how you make out with the X-M1. I've been going back and forth between that and the X70.

Hope all is well back there.

Hi, Bill! Good to see you - hopefully all is well in the land of corn and hogs.

Are you specifically interested in a 28mm-e, or are you openminded? This all grew out of an interest in Fuji's JDM "toy" 24mm and trying to find a suitable host for it. I'll keep you posted - my 24mm left Osaka yesterday!

Update:

My JDM 24/8 showed up the other day, and I was able to get out and shoot a little with it on the X-M1 yesterday. Early impressions are very favorable - I was shooting in P mode and using the thumbwheel for exposure compensation. Shutter lag is negligible, it's not in good SLR or RF territory but very workable.

Using the X-M1 as a waist level is a blast, but I'd still like to try a simple OVF or even a peephole type finder on it. I have an inexpensive 40mm-e finder on the way off eBay that I'd like to try with the Fuji 27, but it may be effective with this 24, too.

Funny, you're basically talking to yourself....

Anyway, the shutterlag of the X-M1 is slightly worse then the comparable Sony NEX 5N with manual focus lenses. The Nikon D3300 is much worse.....
