Default Soon to purchase - is time lag a problem?

Concerned that camera pose delay will affect ability of family point and shoot shots to capture the scene as it happens as you wanted it. Are any cameras worse than others - 2 and 3MPxl ranges.
Thanks

Shutter lag occurs in the auto mode. To compensate for the lag you press the shutter half way, a light or beep will indicate the camera has auto focused, then press the shutter button completely. It is a very easy procedure to get use to.

Thanks, I was thinking last night that all analogue auto non SLR and the auto mode SLR's will do the same thing, so the half shutter posn allows for light sensing for aperture and for focus, some seem to have a focus ready light too.

Was interested in comments on Canon A40 vs Sony P2
