I have both the transcend 20 Mbps and the Sandisk 30 mbps (both class 10 and both 8gb) and i hardly feel the difference...i think you are experiencing those long waits after taking long exposures (more than 1 second). If that's the case then its not really write time...its processing (noise reduction) time. Try turning noise reduction off and and see if it still "writes" as long.

That said, you can always get the Sandisk as your second SD card as see for yourself

am considering this question for myself as well. i've been feeling a little anxious about that orange data-write icon that flashes in the upper left corner for a couple seconds after most shots. right now i have an 8gb transcend class 10 SDHC... you don't think getting, say, a 30MB/s class 10 sandisk 'extreme' would help with that?
