My guess it that this is caused by disuse.  An R4 in Mint or EX+ condition certainly hasn't been used as much as it ought to have been, so it's not surprising that something has gotten sluggish.  Cost of a CLA varies depending on who performs the work and what camera model it is, from $US125 to $US250.
