What is the startup speed of the *ist Ds and *ist D|?

Does the size or speed of the card affect the startup speed?

Probably well under 1 sec but I never switch it off once I'm out and about using the camera.

I've left the power off setting at 1 min; I just press the shutter button to re-activate the camera & the focus locks almost instantly - so easy to use & the batteries last for ever (well over 600 shots on a set of charged batteries).

I've also disabled the start up screen from displaying the mode in use - no reason other than I found it a tad annoying.

I turn it on, it flashes on the LCD what mode it is on the dial (which pressing the shutter release halfway thru cancels that screen) and then its ready to go. Hardly any time at all
