Re: Olympus E-M1 mark ii: a extrem fast camera needs an extrem fast memorycard

And we've got another interesting information: to enable the fast writing-speed of the camera, the second (UHS I)-slot must be EMPTY! Because - despite a very fast Lexar UHS II 2000x-card in slot 1 - any other card in slot 2 would slow down the writing-speed of the camera because of the slower UHS-I-slot!

So if you realy want a fast camera like the EM1 II you absolutely need a UHS II-card with approx. 300 MB/s in slot 1and an empty slot 2!

This would seem to negate the advantage of 2 slots. Hopefully an update can change this.
