K-7 acting up?

Hi Guys,

I had bought a second-hand K-7 a while ago and its in excellent working order. The one thing that I wonder about is when I make a photo, it takes about 2-3 seconds to show it up on my lcd, unlike the K-x where the photo shows up instantly. Is that normal for the K-7 to process this long or anything I can do to speed up the display to show instantly?

Do you have any chromatic abberation, distortion, shadow/highlight corrections on? If so, that slows down the speed the camera needs to show the image because of the processing it has to do.

LeDave is right. Also, if you're shooting in RAW, you don't need these corrections turned on, because you can do them easily when processing the files in Pentax DCU. Just tick the boxes in the aberrations panel.

Right on the money guys. It was those settings and now the display is instant. Thanks LeDave and Calsan.
