It's not the read speed, but the write speed. The camera can't clear a shot out of its memory buffer until the shot is transferred to the card. If you're carefully composing each shot one at a time, then it probably doesn't matter; if you some x fps for an action shot, then a faster card makes a difference. Optimum is a card that can take data at least as fast as the camera can send it.
