Kx "reaction time"

Dear all,
First, I apologize for my poor english.
I am the happy owner of a KX since 3 days. Nice camera !
There is just something I don't understand. If I remember well, when I first tried the camera, 3 days ago, the pictures was appearing on the screen, say, 1 second after the shot. Now it takes 3-4 seconds. I think I have not changed any parameter, I am still in 6Mpix, JPEG, ***. Also, I can make only 3 shots one after the other, after this, it takes some time before the camera is available.
Do you know why ?
Is there a way to restore the initial settings, in case I have done something strange ?
Thanks a lot.

go to the menus and disable the
distortion and chromatic aberration corrections

that should speed things up

It also slows it down if you have the copyright info being added to each photo.

Why are you shooting at 6Mp? Also, there shouldn't be much of a delay unless you're shooting at night or have special filters enabled.
