I have shot with the Extreme 32GB 45mbs with the E-M1 Mark 1 for the past five years without running into problem. I also had Micro Center slower card in the camera with no ill effect.

As always all the feed back has been extremely helpful. I found a deal at a local BestBuy on Sandisk UltraPlus 64gb 80mb for $19.95 each. (apparently someone mis-labeled the cards and I got myself a sweet deal!). So I got a 64gb for each body along with all the other SD cards I have, I should well set for a long time! Thanks all!

Just in case you do ever have this question again or someone stumbles upon this thread here's a great resource for picking memory cards:

The EM-1 mkI tops out at 32 MBPS and your card is ~20 MBPS for writes so it should be a solid choice.

Also I got that write figure from their table here:
