Re: The calculation says A77 writes at ~ 58 MB/s to SD card

I no longer have anything slower than the 45MB/s card to compare as they were painfully slower than either of these to clear the buffer. So, from the perspective of the ExtremePro's 7-second performance, the 45MB/s card takes 57% longer to clear. Is the faster card worth the extra cost? Well, that's a personal decision, but after spending multiple thousands on bodies & glass, a 57% reduction in performance seems like a lot to swallow just to save 30 bucks

Alan, Its not about saving 30 bucks, 32GB Sandisk Extreme Pro cost here $100, Sony 32GB 45mbps cost here $40 and So I do not want to spend $100 for a camera without knowing the actual write speed of a camera
