Recording duration between lead stages

Is there any default way to report on the time cycle between each? I'm planning to create timestamp fields for each stage and use a field update with value NOW() for each stage. Then compute the duration from one timestamp to the next. But is there any out of the box method to report on this? We want to correlate conversion rate against speed to contact, etc.

No this is standard for Opportunity stage tracking but not for leads.
You will need custom fields and workflows to populate the date when the stage changes.

Laura, I know this is an old post, but you mention that this is standard for Opportunities.  Can you point me to where I would find that functionality?
