Flash/Shutter Delay with M5

Quiet
Enthusiast

I just got a new-to-me M5 and I simply adore it. Mirrorless offers everything I want in a camera.

 

Only glitch is the fairly well known issue of delayed shutter and flash operation in very dark surrounds, even after focus has supposedly been established.

 

Has there been a firmware fix for this yet?

 

Thanks,

Quiet... like the M5

Even without AF the delay is there. M50 doesn't have the delay.

It worked better with 1.0.2 but the delay is still there.

Thanks, Peter. I'm not fretting this; the problem only seems to occur when it's so dark that the autofocus has difficulty locking on in the first place.

 

Otherwise, the M5 is so enormously attractive to me that this slight glitch is easily accdfomodated.
