Got a new to me 24-85 AF lens and was trying it out ,getting use to it and notice that when I took a shot that the shutter release would not work for a few seconds. Notice that the red light next to the film winder knob was flashing and couldn't take another picture until it stop. The flim advance and the camera would focus for the next shot but the shutter release would not work. Look every where and couldn't find any info, the manual only refers to something abnormal happened or it blinks when rewinding the film. Could someone help me with this?

It is usually related to the camera not reading the DX code on the film canister. You might try setting the ISO/ASA manually.
