I no longer care very much that the V3 uses microSD cards but I still wish that Nikon had stuck with SDHC/SDXC.

for years I have been paying 1-2 dollars more for MicroSD cards that come with SD card adapters; by choice. A MicroSD can become an SD, but you can't do the reverse if buying the full-sized SD cards. I have used retired old MicroSD camera memory in:
-voice recorder
-those small USB card readers that just take MicroSD

More flexibility means more fun.

Unfortunately there have been numerous reports of cameras producing corrupted image files when microsSD cards have been used with SD card adapters,

Oooh, fear the SD adapter!

There have also been (countless) reports of card corruption of those not using adapters. And how do we know adapters increase the risk of corruption? I have had zero issues in several cameras using SD adapters over a span of several years. Does that mean everyone will? Of course not. Do reports of corruption necessarily prove a correlation between adapters and MicroSD? Nope. I I've seen no proof of it that's for sure.

So not only are you wrong on the speed issue, I'd suggest no correlation with adaptor use and corruption, based on my own experiences using several different cameras over the years (all with adapters). There will always be "some reports" but they don't necessarily prove a correlation.

Fear and ignorance
You were wrong on the speed issue and I'd suggest you are wrong on this point too
