"Like the E-410 the new model takes a little longer than (most) other cameras to start up due to the SSWF sequence."

For the love of God...when will this nonsense ever end?! Every single Oly review, without exception, treats this as if it's actually worthy of comment. The SSWF sequence takes about as long as the time from when you flip the on switch until you raise the camera to your eye. What utterly irrelevant nonsense!

And I've actually seen newbies question this feature. As in, "I'm thinking about buying an Oly DSLR but I'm concerned about the slow start up time..."

Honestly, if I see one of these reviewers in person, I'm going to give them a well-deserved slap across the mouth.
