So I've read that the 5D MkIII's SD card only reads/writes or something at 20mbps (Whereas the CF card is fast as anything).
I'm just wondering if anyone have really fast cards in their 6D's and notice the speed? Compared to slower cards?
I'm planning on buying a Sandisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 card for my 6D, but might not if it wont take full advantage of the speed?
Hope you're all enjoying your 6D's otherwise!

Class 10 SD cards with 30mb/s is adequate for the 6D.  I am using this type of SD card for both photos (typical mRAW+maximum size and quality JPEG) and video (full HD setting).  Class 6 SD cards make the 6D stutter, especially for video.  I have used SanDisk Extreme Pro and I did not notice much of a difference except when on continuous shooting (buffer space gets emptied much faster hence I can do at three sets of burst without lag).
