This discussion is why I have allowed the ADA4899-1 to saturate in the ZCD
posted earlier. The transition times up & down in the second stage are 350 
400 ns; thus I believe the <50ns overload recovery doesn't degrade the
measured jitter. With 500MHz 'scope bandwidth, the 1KHz squarewave
output has <1% over/under shoot & appears noise free at the zero crossing.

The output transitions are fast enough for my HP 5370A to  show < 1ns
jitter over 1K or 10K samples.
