I recently acquired a used Nikon D5000 in mint condition, and everything works well except that I have now noticed that every time I take a photograph, and image review is on, there is a delay of a few seconds before the image appears on the screen.

In other words, I take the picture, the display lights but as a blank grey for a few seconds, and then the image appears. I have tried turning ADR off, and using different SD cards but with the same effect.

I have had other DSLR's in the past where the image view was virtually instantaneous.

Is this behavior normal for the D5000?

Two things I just noticed. If I remove the SD card, and shoot DEMO image, the image review is virtually instantaneous.

Secondly, if I reduce the image size from large to either Medium or Small, the Image Review is faster.

The interesting thing is that I am using a SanDisk Extreme SDHC card so I would have thought that the write speed would be faster for all size images but it seems that the write speed is predicated on the size of the JPEG Image as opposed to the type of card that I am using.

Do you agree?

The write speed can only be as fast as the slowest process in the chain. In this case it's the camera and not the card. The only thing a fast card gets you is faster file transfer from a fast card reader to your computer. If you reread your post you'll find you actually answered your own question.

I bought an express card to SD for my MacBook pro. I can view images in view finder pretty fast. But transfer to computer from SD card is about 10 times faster than the Camera (mine is a D3000). My Express Card is a Transcend TS-RDF1.I also have one by SanDisk but I don't like it as well. The SD card in the Transcend clicks into place. while the one from Sandisk the card goes in easy but doesn't lock into place and can be easily removed by accident.

I'm using a Kingston sdhc 8gb class 4 card in my d5000, and my display comes on almost instantaneously. When I first got my d5000 I researched sd cards and found that different people had luck with different brands, sizes and classes of cards. Most seemed to have little problems with the Kingston 8gb cards so it's most probably the card, but because your d5000 is used, it may have a problem. Possibly it was dropped or has some other problem. First try a different card. If that doesn't help, you could save any custom settings you've made to the camera, and try a hard reset. Hope you find the problem as I fingd the d5000 to be a very good camera. Good luck.
