SD card slows XQD for D850?
1

I've got a fast Sony G 400 MB/s XQD card in my D850.  It's 128 GB, so I don't really need an overflow in the SD slot, but I put my slower SD HC 16 GB card in there anyway.

I don't write to the SD card - strictly overflow (which hasn't happened yet).  Some have said that the SD card will slow down writing to the XQD card even when the SD card is not used.  Do I really need to take the SD card right out to get the best speeds from the XQD card?

ANSWER:
Nikon D850
