Preview delay

How long does it take to display a picture on the screen after you take a picture with the K5 (Jpeg, 16 mp, 4 star quality, no lens correction). Mine seemes to take 2/3 seconds.
If I set lens correction ON, it takes about 5 seconds. Is that normal

Yeah, it's one of life's little irritations with the K5. It doesn't give instant reviews.

It's never been normal to me, mine is virtually instant. I shoot RAW only.

It's normal. Were you using a P&S before?

It's pretty instantaneous with the lens correction turned off with jpeg.

most of the time the culprit for slow review is slow SD cards.
i using class 6 cards so far preview had been almost instantaneous (no lens correction).
unless you are shooting continuous frames like 7FPS, the SD card speed may be the bottleneck.

What about highlight and shadow corrections under D-range settings (recording menu page 3)?
They should be off as well as they too affect image processing time, whether on RAW or JPEG format (even though RAW does not incorporate changes from D-range or lens correction settings).
It should be instantaneous with all these settings off.

Not a problem for us down here....it gives Otis a chance to rest between poses.

Well PRIME II processor in K-5 is not up to speed compared to some other brands, so it will take some more processing time.

It's not that slow to be honest(the quoted time above is probably over exagerated!), but it's certainly not instant like my previous camera (d5000)
I am using a genuine Sandisk Extreme SDHC, so unlikely to be the card.

I've also noticed that shooting with noise reduction switched on adds a couple of secs more 1600 iso and higher

I notice that my camera will give me an instant preview when I shoot with my old M42 Tak 55mm f1.4. But I get the delay when I shoot with my DA 40mm f2.8 ltd (and I believe I get the same delay with my newer Fish Eye, though I cant remember off the top of my head)

You have the Lens correction On. Camera cannot apply lens correction when a manual lens is mounted, so it automatically cancels it.

Don't you want to paint your trees in white?

Would give better contrast to your otis images
