optical view finder. this seams odd as it is only a lens. Was the camera dropped at some point? that may explain both issues. if not then I need to know a little more prior to offering an opinion.

I posted this on another link to this site where they were having the sam eproblem so this may work for you.
OK, I think I worked it out. The shutter button was not working correctly. They wanted at least $182 to ship it off to a Canon repair facility. Give me a break! My husband spilled coffee on his personal laptop and then several weeks later spilled juice on his work laptop...I'm thinking...hello...learn any lessons yet. Anyway, he couldn't get the keyboard to work properly on his personal laptop (apparently it didn't like all the caffeine) so he bought some Precision Electronics Cleaner at Radio Shack and tried to clean it. That didn't work so we had to order another keyboard. But, that gave us the idea to try the cleaner on the shutter button. The button worked fine in the half way down focus position so we figured the spring under the button was still working but the contact when you pressed it all the way down was not activating the shutter. If we jiggled the button a bit it would take the photo so that meant the contact needed cleaning in order to take a picture with out mashing or jiggling. So short story long, I sprayed some in there and then blew some air into it to dry it out a bit quicker. The spray evaporates anyway, but that just sped up the process. It works like a charm now!!! YEAH!
Let us know if this helps. Good Luck!

SOURCE: EOS 30D is slow to fire.
Are you sure you aren't in the delay setting in drive mode? This camera has 2 delay settings, one for 2 seconds between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo, and one with 10 seconds delay - often used when you want to be in the photo (e.g. self-portrait or group photo).
If you aren't in the delay mode, then I need to know more about your settings. What shooting mode are you using? What type of photo are you trying to take (portrait, landscape, sports)? Are you shooting indoors, outdoors, bright sunlight, overcast, etc.?

It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!
If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.
