MG TD TF 1500 - oil pressure on start up?

I have just changed the oil and filter on my 51 TD using Duckhams Classic 20/50. It seems to take longer to show an oil pressure than before, I siad seems because I didn't notice a delay before. The pressure builds to 50psi after about 8 or 9 seconds after starting after standing for 24 hours. Is this right?

There's a fairly long delay after an oil change, because it has to fill the oil filter, but it shouldn't take that long otherwise for a normal startup, IMO. My TF shows oil pressure within 1-2 seconds of startup. 50 psi is fine.
