I've formatted all cards in my K-5 II before testing. The newer Ultra 16GB card was tested as delivered and then tested after farmatting in K.5 II. Both with the same (bad) result on my VAIO F11 notebook.

In my Oly XZ10 the cards were formatted in this camera of course. I tested with continuous shooting JPG+RAW; shots per second dropped to about half (of the older cards) with the newer cards after writing buffers were full.
