A7RIV EVF lag with aperture slower than f/8 (with 100-400)

I'm absolutely happy with my A7RIV and 100-400 GM combo, but last day I've noticed something - which must be AF/aperture related, but is a bit strange.

I've always used this combo for spotting with AF-C (tracking) and Hi shutter mode - always with aperture faster than f/8.

Last time I've decided to try some panning in bright light - so I had to go with apertures like f/11 or slower. And suddenly I've noticed that after pressing shutter EVF freezes for good quarter of second before it starts to shot. This is really annoying as during that time object can significantly move and it is difficult to keep with smooth panning.

I guess this has to to with AF and f/8 limit, but are there any settings that influence this? Its there any way to avoid it?

Br, Pawel.
