Has anybody experience with flash recharge timeand red eye reduction on SX100.

I hope it will be better than A710/720

AFAIK, no dealers have this camera yet (at least not in the U.S.) Most dealers appear to expect delivery in October. So, it's unlikely you'll find someone that can answer this question yet.

Note that ISO speed and distance to subjectwill cause flash recycle time to vary. That's because the closer you are to a subject, the shorter the flash burst can be for proper exposure (so, the recycle time is faster since the capacitor isn't fully discharged). Some models also have more flash range compared to others.

ISO speed also impacts it (because a shorter flash burst can be used at higher ISO speeds). Lens brightness also impacts it, and with the majority of smaller models, lenses lose light as you zoom in more (so a longer flash burst is needed to illuminate a subject if you are zooming in much).

Battery type also influences it. As a general rule, models using smaller batteries (or 2 AA batteries versus 4 AA batteries) are going to take longer to recycle when everything else is equal between models (and it rarely is).

The SX100 will use two AA Batteries. So, chances are, recycle time will be about the same as the A710.
