Lytro Illum: Anyone preordered? Thoughts?

Hi All: May I ask if there are folks who have preordered the Lytro Illum?

Those who preordered are supposed to receive the Illum during August.

According to Lytro's FAQ, it says that they recommend at least a 32GB card with at least 90MB/s speed, and that the maximum speed card the Illum supports is UHS-1, so that means that it doesn't support UHS-11 speed.

When I read users' reviews on SD cards, some have said that they have trouble with their cameras acting up with 64GB Sandisk cards, so they went back to 32GB cards. Can that really be true? Why would 64GB give folks more trouble?

I'm guessing that the

Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB SDXC/SDHC UHS-1 Class 10 card (SDSDXPA-064G)

is a good fit, as it doesn't use the newer UHS-11 protocol, just the UHS-1 which is explicitly what the Illum supports, at least according to their FAQ posted.

Look forward to hearing who else might be waiting for theirs!

Thanks in advance.
