K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

As interesting would be a calculation of what write speed our cameras card slots can actually cope with, or perhaps we are wasting money on the exotic models.

Interesting article. Though I really do think this only applies if your shooting rapid fire. Im surprised to see Sandisk down the list. Ive never had a problem with any brand of card reading quickly enough. But I have had a few cases of my K5ii damaging the plastic cases of the Sd Card. Having had to return several of them under warranty. I have found all Manufacturers to be excelent in this regard.

NB. For Sandisk it does not state the actual card they are using. As the Extreme pro comes in different speeds up to 240Mbs. The recovery software is also only on a trial basis.
