Oly M5 MKII - slow write speeds/black screen


I'm new to the forum and new to micro 4/3.

I recently purchased a M5 MKII after reading up on it.  Seems like a nice little camera to accompany my Canon 6D.

Something bugs me : when taking a picture in iAuto or any of the scene modes the camera is very responsive.  It shows me a life screen almost instantly but when using modes P-A-S or M the screen goes black and shows the writing icon in the top left screen.  This takes about 2 seconds.

Before anybody asks I did turn off 'Rec View' in the last menu item.

I'm using a Transcend 16GB SDHC I (class 10) memory card.  I also formatted the card using the camera.

This slow response in P-A-S-M is a big minus for me.

Anybody with the same problem or solution.  Or is this typical for mirrorless?
