Info on D850, Please

I own D800 and D810 and I did get to spend some time shooting with the D850, thus I know what I'm buying.

But a few quick questions for owners:

1) I see I need to spend about 800 bucks to get the extra 2 FPS. But is everyone absolutely sure the extra speed can't be acquired by using the AA battery tray?

2) I see some silly panic over the shortage of memory cards for these cameras. Has anyone tested how "slow" a top spec SD card really is? I'm assuming the main factor is how long you can hold the shutter down during action.

3) Does anyone make a multi-card reader that also handles All I'm seeing is the single units from Lexar and Sony.

4) I ordered two D850 bodies. One from Amazon and the other from B&H. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to my wait? 3 months? Five? Someone at B&H said 6-8 weeks, but I doubt that.
