Default Kodak Zi8 Startup Time

Has anyone else noticed the larger SDHC card you put in the Zi8, the longer the start up time becomes?

I was using a SanDisk 4GB SDHC (class 4) card and it started up almost instantaneously.
I then tried a 16 GB SDHC Transcend (Class 6) and it now took about 3-4 seconds before I could start recording (and the SD icon showed on the bottom).
I then tried a 32 GB Transcend SDHC card (class 6) and now it takes like 6 seconds before the SD icon shows up and allows me to start recording.

Anyone else experience this? What time do you have from when you push ON To when you can start recording?

I dont know if this is a problem with the 32 GB card or the Zi8.. or not a problem at all.
