I called Sigma about that when I got my DP2M, and the support rep said that the write speed is constant, so a faster card will not help in that respect. You'd probably be fine with a class 6 card. The only advantage I can see in getting a faster card is if you plug the card directly into your computer when uploading. That should make things go a little faster.

I did just that, and got a class 10 32GB card. I'm fine with the speed, but I regret not coughing up the extra money to get a 64GB card. It's surprising how fast those 80MB RAW photos eat up disk space.
