Look in the menu and see if you have Red Eye Reduction enabled when the camera is in normal flash mode. If you do, it will cause a delay with the pop-up flash as you described. Switching to wireless mode disables it automatically.

Thanks. Spot on, it now works perfectly. I've been using the A57 for 1year already, and I was thinking it's just probably how it is. Thanks again.
