Question about Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera with 17-85mm Lens
Recently, I occasionally get delays of several seconds between the press on the shutter release button and the actual release. This happens when the focus is already locked, in all the AF modes, and different lens.
The camera may be trying to over expose the picture a little so that you do not get such a dark picture. Try it in a dark room at take the picture the lens will stay open until the camera feels it has gotten enough light and then the picture is taken. It allows the picture to be taken and be seen (not just black) without using the flash

This is weird, usually shutter delays are caused because camera is trying to focus first, it really shouldn't happen after pre-focus. do you have a manual focus mode? if you do, try it and see if it works. if you dont, I would still suspect it some kind of focusing problem, but unfortunalty i have no idea how you can fix it yourself.

I have same problem with my Rebel XTI and asked the problem to Canon USA. Here is the answer of Canon USA and it seems worked with my camera.
Resetting the camera back to default standards may solve the problem.
Please put the camera in AF mode instead of MF. In order to reset the camera back to default standards, we recommend you perform the following
1. Turn the camera ON in the P (Program) Mode.
2. Press the MENU button.
3. Scroll over to the Tools2 menu, then scroll down to Clear all settings.
4. Highlight the Clear all settings option and press the SET button.
5. Highlight the OK option and press the SET button.
At this point, the camera should be reset back to factory standards.
Also, try a different lens. If the camera still does not work, then the camera will need to be serviced.
Hoping to help finding a way to solve your problem.
