D7000 - Class 6 or Class 10 ??

Greetings -

Recently asked Nikon point blank if there was any real-world difference
between Class 6 & Class 10 SDHC cards in a D7000, for either photos
or video. Or, stated another way, can a D7000 actually take advantage
of a Class 10 card's potential faster throughput?

Thus far completely ignored (or refused to answer) the question, stating only:

Memory cards with an SD Speed Class rating of 6 or faster are recommended for recording movies.

So, my working assumption is now that there's no difference, and that as long as
one uses a reputable brand on their (rather short) Approved list, performance
will be the same.

Anyone know different?

P.S. - I don't mind buying the Class 10 for better real-world performance --
but I dislike spending more than necessary.
