K5 slower write speeds with some lenses

newly acquired k5 takes longer to display recorded image on screen with da18-55 and da55-300 lenses than with sigma 17-70 and 10-20 , any ideas , older 50mm 1.7 A is faster too.

You probably have lens correction (LC) on. LC only applies to some Pentax lenses (DA, DA L, DFA, and some FA).

Page 219 of the manual: "When the lens correction function is activated, it may take longer to display Instant Review..."
