G1X does 5fps in P mode! WTH?

Yes no joke. If I set my G1X to P burst mode, without AF between shots, the first 2 frames fire off at a blistering pace! If I then keep the shutter button pushed down, from the 3rd frame onwards it slows back to turtle mode.

Only a guesstimate, but it's seems more than twice as fast as the normal burst rate, and VERY approximately about the same as the 5.5fps on my FZ200.

Although the screen blacks out, if I'm only interested in those first 2 frames, there is virtually no processing or buffering delay. I can repress the shutter and focus for the next shot straight away.

My G1X is less than a week old so I'm wondering if this is normal behaviour for the G1X, or in fact for any of the G series cameras?
