Under what conditions does you display appear slow?

I have noticed that the longer the exposure, the slower the LCD gets updated. Doesn't this make sense for a WYSIWYG display? If you have to collect more light to get a brighter image then the same would be true to get a lighter LCD display.

If the G2 has a WYSIWYG display, then it too should slow down when the exposure is longer.

Try some experiments in low light conditions so the LCD does not get saturated. Let us know what happens.

i think the LCD refreshes about 30 (1/30sec) times per sec. if you move rapidly it will tend to seem slow trying to update and AF with a new refreshed image. it is primarily a still image camera remember. they put cpu priority somewhere else. its QT movies work nicely too. of course they're lower res images.
