Please test setting release lag to short before you set the shutter delay to 1/8th of a second. Many people have suggested that this is the best way to resolve shutter shock and you don't get that annoying 1/8th of a second delay

Enabling the short release lag indeed pretty much resolved it.  Not perfect, but tolerable.  Thanks for the suggestion.  I had no idea that setting would contribute to how much shock there was.  My apologies if it's in the manual, but I purchased 2nd hand without one.

Anti-shock helps even more, but I really couldn't work with that lag.  If I decide to take a landscape at night or some such, it's nice to know I have that option.

Thanks again.
