They are faster than camera interface. Noooo, it must not be a Sandisk ...

True. And that's the reason that the fastest Sony cards are at least as fast (faster in my experience) than the fastest SD on a NEX - the MS card is handled more efficiently than the SD with fewer, wider data transfers even though the SD card would be faster on a fully compliant system.

If the NEX supported UHS-1 card speeds then the comparison result would look very different, but it doesn't.
