I tested two SanDisk cards with my NEX-5N; one was an Extreme HD Video (30MB/s) and the other was an Extreme Pro UHS-1 (45MB/s). The NEX-5N is not UHS rated/capable so both cards just drop to class 10 and I got the similar results with both cards in Speed Priority Continuous mode, Shutter Priority, 1/100.

With all lens correction attributes turned off:
RAW: 7 frames
JPEG (Fine): 10 frames
RAW + JPEG: 5 frames

With all lens correction attributes turned on:
RAW: 5 frames
JPEG (Fine): 5 frames
RAW + JPEG: 4 frames
