I apologize, everyone.. I have gotten no notifications of any new posts.

I appreciate all of your responses.. I am shooting uncompressed RAW on these cards currently, but I have tried I think 5 others that were all the same "rating" and also were tested on a blog I read about the best cards for use with the A7RII, in which he pointed out that the camera's buffer was the limitation, not the card. Similar results across the board.

I am primarily using these: Lexar Professional 1000x 128GB SDXC UHS-II/U3 Card

I had read that going up in speed class was not useful because of the internal memory buffer issues.

This camera is creating some of the best scans I've ever seen, but the time lag is really hurting my production. Any help to speed it up is appreciated, and I will try anything. Sorry again for the lack of response. I have subscribed now and should be responding promptly now.

Thanks!

By "scans" do you mean you're using it for photo-modeling? Photo-scanning? I don't see why you need the super high write speed. If you're scanning a live model you're better off with a rig of cameras that fire simultaneously. If you're trying to do it with a single handheld camera, you're better off with a D810 or D750, something with a faster autofocus and write speed/ or compact flash support.
