Realistically, I think you'll see two types, the mass-produced taken at cons/gatherings/events and posted on sites like facebook or this one, and then the best images that a photographer will spend more time on.

For the former, I think timeliness is the most important. If I have to spend more than 5+ minutes on a mass-production type photo, then it stops being feasible to finish the photos for an event within a few days to a week or two; and this ought to be your goal if your are shooting conventions.

For the latter type of photos, spend as long as you need to, even if it takes you half an hour, an hour, or more at first, it's those photos that will define who you are as a photographer and show what you can really accomplish.
