K5 Shutter Release Delay?

Just experiencing this problem now.

What happens is that once the AF is locked and the shutter release is pressed, there is a delay in which the shutter releases. I'd say it's about a 1/10th of a second, but it's not instant.

It doesn't happen all the time, just sometimes.

This doesn't seem normal, anyone else experience this?

Haven't come across this, but sometimes when you use the central focus point only and you recompose you can suffer a small delay if by mistake you lift you finger from the shutter only a little bit. Then the lens starts focussing al over again.

No it's from the point of focus confirmation.

1. Half way button press for focus
2. Focus confirmed (beep)
3. Press for shutter release
4. Delay, as if didn't register in camera right away

Alright did some more testing and found the fault.

It's a faulty shutter release button. I would depress the shutter button for focus and if I press the button lightly, the button would depress but the shutter won't release. I have to really press down on the button for it to release the shutter.

I can actually have some play with the button, meaning that i can let it come back up and press down again and the shutter still won't release.

Going back to Pentax a 3rd time, this is REALLY getting frustrating.
