Suggestions for improving shutter lag on X-Pro1?

I got an X-Pro1 two weeks ago and while playing around with it discovered that it has significant shutter lag even when using all manual settings. Manual focus, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. It seems like the lag is due to the camera stopping down the aperture from its wide-open live-view mode to the aperture that's set on the lens. I even tried setting Fn to preview DOF so that it would stop down but that doesn't help. The only way I've found so far to get better shutter lag is to half-press and hold the shutter button (it also has shorter lag when shooting wide open but this obviously isn't usable all the time). This seems like a poor man's solution to what should be an easy problem.

Am I missing something obvious? How do you guys deal with this issue?
