New Nikon P600 needs 30s. to save in Continuous High Mode?!?

Hello to all,

First of all, please escuse me for my poor english. I need a little help from P600 owners.

I purchased one as an upgrade to my old P510.

P600 are advertised as multitasking and better an faster procesor, BUT...

In Continuous High mode, after i shot a series, my new P600 needs 30 SECONDS to save the images untill i can focus and shot again?!? Running a test wit same settings and same card (Sandisk Extreme Pro 45 mb/s 16 Gb) with my older P 510 in same Continuous High mode, and i can focus for a new shot in only 6 seconds!

So i am confused! What kind of multitaskig is this?

P600 needs 30 seconds P510 needs 6 seconds

A 2 generation older model in Continuous High mode, at the same settings, with same type of SDHC card is moving 5X faster than the new, better equipped with a new multitasking processor?

In other ways it's a great camera, have a better battery and a lot of other improvements compared to my older P510, but for Birds, i used a lot that C H mode, so i am a little disappointed for that lag.

So, if you have time to run a test with your P600 in Continuous High mode (at maximum optical zoom) and confirm that annoying 30 seconds needed to save the images to memory card, please let me know. I need to know: my camera is defective or this is an... "issue" of this new model?

Thanks to all and waiting for your reply!
