Instant Display on K-x

I have 2 K-x Cameras - One Camera displays the photograph just taken on the LCD display almost imediately. On the other camera there is a delay of about three second before image is displayed.
I have checked and checked - both cameras are set up the same, as far as I can tell.
I just cannot understand the great difference in time before displaying image?
Regards, Martin

Try swapping the cards you're using in each camera. Maybe you have a faster card in one camera and a slower card in the other?

You might have missed it while checking: distortion correction and CA correction?

Also shadow/highlight correction slows things down.
