Shutter lag was also a big difference for me when I moved from D80 to D700. Actually, I didn't realize anything when I was testing out my D700 first time. I constantly used for for 3 days in a row and then picked up my D80 again for a shot or two. It was then when I felt like I was waiting forever for the shutter to go off on my D80. I tried it a few more times and I could see the insanely long shutter lag that I never realized for the past 6 years on my D80. There's no going back now for me to DX.
The D80's shutter response time is 80ms vs 40ms for the D700. You would not be able to tell the difference.
If you are talking about the difference in time the camera takes to focus prior to the shutter being released, then yes you can tell a difference between a lower and higher grade AF system. But, not shutter response.
Maybe you had some kind of exposure delay accidentally turned on?
Trust me, you can totally tell the difference in lag between a D700 and a D80.....Like someone else said, the "shutter lag" may technically be the time it takes the camera to respond to the shutter release being pressed, BUT, the mirror still has to get out of the way before the exposure can start, and the D300/D700 series is NOTICEABLY faster than the D80/D80/D7000 series in that respect.....They are far more responsive, and the D2/D3/D4 series are even faster......i guarantee i'm not the only person who thinks so, and notices it...
