Hi Thomas,

As far as I can see the card write speed is only important when you are firing bursts.

I got the 95M/s cards because the cost of them will probably be spread across the life of the camera, so really its not a big deal.

With the new cards I can fill the buffer with a burst and it will clear in a second or two.  I tried the old 2G SD cards out of my D50 and it took nearly a minute to clear !

I don't think write speed is an issue for video although that's just from what I have heard. I haven't got around to trying video on mine yet.

Steve
