Never understood the "it's too slow" crowd. It is like they have to hurry upstairs to waiting naked partner, or else.
Once instant coffee was invented the world started its decline.
Why everyone is so obsessed with the need for speed in their photography is beyond me. I guess I just don't hold my finger on the trigger long enough.
Admittedly I use film far more often than digital, but I also use a Sigma DP3 Merrill and have not had any critical problems. I think battery life is a far bigger issue with the Merrills but the batteries are much smaller than a roll of film and I have no problem carrying as many rolls or batteries as I need.
As for software, I use Sigma Photo Pro to sort my images and then convert the ones I'm interested in. Again, I spend way more time considering the merits of individual photos than Sigma Photo Pro spends converting them. As for speed, Photoshop is no speed demon either.
Whatever, to each his own.
