burst speeds

Like other posters, I don't usually shoot in sufficiently rapid bursts to overwhelm the camera to card write speed.

I don't know about "other posters" but I sometimes shoot birds in flight and have a custom setting set up to do just that. That means that I do sometimes use burst and sometimes overwhelm the camera's buffer space with images.

If you don't take continuous burst shots, then it is not important. If you do sometimes do so, or think you might, there are some things you should plan to do to compensate for the slow write speeds to the sd cards.
