There was no flashing globe intermediate step.

Thanks forum.
Just so you know, it seems to also be influenced by what you have hooked up. If I boot my iMac with only the Ethernet cable and 2nd display (Thunderbolt) connected, it takes 2.8s from power button to BONG, and 15.2s from power button to login screen. If I hook up the normal complement of one Thunderbolt and two USB 3.0 drives, and a USB 3.0 hub, it takes 3.5s to from power button to BONG and 17.8s from power button to login screen. All on a 1TB Fusion drive using ~200GB of space.
