sd Quattro's were much improved in that regard. AF was still on the slower side but the general operation of the camera never really got in the way like the Merrill's did. For example, RAW writes were about half the time, 7 shot buffer and the camera could be writing out of the buffer while continuing to shoot. The Merrills reset the buffer write if you took a shot while that was going on.

I timed the sd Q H at around 6 fps in continuous mode. EVF was totally blacked out in continuous mode though.

A sd Quattro type body with a short flange distance mount would be a very interesting camera....
