Yes, 64gb will be fine, but less to lose if there's a problem with an 8gb card.

K3 will use any SD, SDHC or SDHX standard card, but the speed of fast cards might be lost due to its lower write speed so unless you're also using kit that needs fast cards - something that shoots 4k video for example - you might want to just buy capacity not speed.

I'd Go for a Sandisk 64Gb extreme pro @95mbps, reliable, faster than the buffer and most definitely plenty of space......
best price try My Memory or Amazon....

I have a 64Gb in slot 1 and a 32Gb in slot 2. Then I shoot raw on 1 and jpg on 2.

I'd agree with this. I've never had any problems with these cards.
I've used 32 & 16 cards in the K-3 (RAW/JPEG) - still plenty of space with those.
I think it's better to buy a card that's faster than the camera needs rather than have a slower card that could hamper the camera's performance, but any reasonably fast card is going to be just fine in most cases.
I've used My Memory a few times and their service and prices have been pretty good.
Remember it's the write speed that's the most important thing to look for rather than the usually quoted read speed.

Of course you have 2 SD slots so could use dual 32mb cards?

I've bought a 16 GB and a 32 GB extreme SD card and as always I format in the camera so now it off to the USA Disney and catch up with friends.
I'm taking a limited 70mm Pentax lens a Tamron 70-200mm fingers cross as last time the Tamron focus gears needed replacing as I found out on a safari trip at bush gardens really put a downer on my trip. and a 28-75mm Tamron f2.8 plus flash and tripod lets hope the tigers are playing ball this year and my Tamron 70-200mm has the reach I need. But I am getting a sigma for Christmas 50-500mm and returning at Easter next year

wish me luck

That's what I do too, so if one card goes bad, you've got the backup of the other.

Are the fastest, eg 95mbps, cards really worth the extra money for use in our DSLRs.....?

Provided you haven't touched the SD card since, you can recover them. The more you use it the less chance you have, so remove it NOW.
Look up Wondershare Photo Recovery on the net and follow the instructions. It's idiotproof and it works. It also has the approval of Kaspersky Labs as a respectable program so you can install it with confidence.

If you didn't add new data to cover them, you still have chance to get them back.

Recuva is a good free resource for this.

Just make sure you recover to another drive, so you don't overnight as you recover.
