K-7 continuous shooting problem

I have a strange problem with continuous shooting on my K-7 using a DA 16-45mm lens. For some reason I can only get 4-5 frames before it completely stops. This problem also occurs on my K-X also. However if I mount the 35-135mm F on the K-7 it will capture 10-12 frames then chug along will the buffer empties. This problem also happens with a DAL 18-55mm lens on the K-7 not on the K-X. I have used various types of SDHC cards all class 6 (SanDisk, Verbatim and Transcend) and all are 8GB. I'm not overly concerned about continuous shooting with any of these lenses but this is an anomaly that is odd.

Did you always shoot in RAW or JPG?

Disable lens correction, shadow/highlight correction, etc. Chances are you've got that enabled!

Thank you. I did have lens correction and chromatic aberrations enabled. Problem resolved.
