I'm very interested in how many uninterrupted shots I get at max fps which your first post didn't really describe (this is mostly dominated by buffer size, but may get a few additional shots due to write speed during the sequence). I hate the stutter when the buffer fills. And, then after I've taken a long sequence, I'd like to know how quickly the camera is ready for another long sequence (this is where the real-world card write speed really matters).

Nikon provides ballpark numbers in the camera's user manual for buffer size with different formats.

How fast the camera can recover depends on the write speed of the memory card, so that is not possible to specify in any general way.
