Press the multi selector up or down to browse through images (this is virtually instant, no perceptible delay between each). You can choose to disable or enable certain display modes via the playback menu. Note that you can switch the up/down and left/right functions of the multi selector via CSM f3 and that you can choose to also use the command dials to browse / change information page via CSM f5.
