Flash lag on the K3

I just tried out my K3 20-minutes ago for the first time.

1. It works with my DA* 50-135mm (others have reported issues with the K3 and this lens).

2. There is a flash lag. I'm using the DA* 16-50mm and it is so obvious. I did the same test on my K5 and no lag. I've tried different modes on the K3 (Green, P, U1) and still there is a lag. I've turned it off then on again. I've tried it about 10-times and everytime there is a lag.

Is there a default setting that somehow is saying the flash needs to be fully charged before firing?

Also, my battery is fully charged. I was charging it all night.
