I have confirmed with my new Lumix GX8 that the SDXC UHS-II cards do indeed work. Formatted them on my Mac, then inserted in the camera and formatted them for the GX8.

I have two Lexar Professional 128 GB ones (x1000 speed) from the Samsung NX1 I sold this week, and I was able to record RAW + JPG at the same time. I took it out of the GX8 and put it in my MacBook Pro, and I was able to copy the photos over to my Desktop.

But the GX8 is using it as a UHS-I per other posting and Panasonic.

Why would you format them on your Mac instead of in camera? I doubt it makes much difference these days, but just to play it safe.

From what I can tell from reading posts, the UHS-II might download faster with the correct reader. But only the SD card slot for iMac Pro list support for UHS-II. The Retina iMac only says "SDXC card slot."

Awaiting delivery of GX8 so have been researching cards. I used to worry more about future proofing but these developments are slowing down, and I hope to have the camera for a couple of years and who know if I'll need UHS-II or III or a microSD or what.
