XC 50-230mm shutter lag on AF-C

Hi, I have just received this new lens recently and having shooting with it with a few times, I noticed that there is a shutter lag on AF-C with my X-A5, no matter what settings.

Shutter lag is much shorter on AF-S though. I'm a bit puzzled by this so I swapped it over to XC 15-45mm and shutter lag is almost non-existance even at full zoom with AF-C mode so it is down to 50-230mm but I'm wondering is this normal?

I know it isn't a speed demon prior to buying it but didn't expect shutter lag to be so bad on AF-C.
