I've had my Bionic since day 1. Seems like every time I log onto this site someone is complaining about the camera. I'm convinced they either expect way too much or they don't know how to use it. I will admit that the very first pic you take after opening the app takes an extra second to work. But if you keep taking pics it's as fast as I would expect it to be. I always wait until the square turns green so I'm focused on the subject.
To prove my point, I'm attaching a couple pics I took in Europe while on vacation last week. I took probably 500 pics, sure not every one of them is perfect but the vast majority are certainly acceptable. Here are some samples including various colors and indoor/outdoor. Someone please tell me they suck.
