OM-D: Which digital storage card should I get?

For the OM-D EM-5: I am wondering which digital storage card should I get?

From the sound of it, when doing multiple photos quickly, the storage technology becomes a bottleneck.

However, I presume that a very fast card, would be as fast as an infinitely fast card, because the "bus speed" of the camera is a bottleneck.

Hence, there may be no point in getting the fastest card.

And also, which is a reliable brand, that is not overpriced? Some cards can be overpriced I reckon??

And also, what is the "sweet spot" for price / GB? Typically IMO, a certain size provides the best price versus storage capacity.
