K5 instant review slower than K7?

Hi everyone,

Just got my K5 today, set the preferences exactly as my old K7. Instant Review includes Histogram and Bright&Dark Areas. I transferred a memory card from the K7 to the K5.

After I take a photo on the K5, it takes 2-3 seconds before the Instant Review pops up. Is this normal? The K7's Instant Review seems to be faster.

The IQ though.... is phenomenal.

On my K-5 instant review with histogram and bright dark occurs in less than a second.

May be some other post shot feature you have enabled perhaps?

Sure enough I had on Distortion Correction AND Chromatic Aberration Adjustment... must have turned them on during experimentation etc. without realizing that they were off on the K7. Thanks guys that was quick
