It starts up quickly, but is very, very slow to close. Quicker on the 7 than the 5N.

I don't know anything abt. operations on 5N but with N7 there seems to be quite a lot of activities going on even after I'm switching mine to OFF:

  • LCD goes blank immediately;
  • but there are various assorted noises, of varying length and intensity, from both the camera and a lens attached (this part is easy - the iris is closing to its smallest);
  • sometimes there is even audible shutter release, although no picture is taken, nor shutter button was pressed before OFF POWER ;
  • and as 16-50 is a newish lens, the N7's FW might have little or no idea how to close id down quickly [just guessing];


This shouldn't make you sad. It's just the dust removal process that fires on shutdown.
