Memory Card Recommendations for the Sony RX10 IV?

I just received my RX10 IV a few days ago, and already am loving shooting with it. Lots of folks in this Forum have helped me tremendously with set-up and accessories. That’s been very much appreciated.

Another question I have concerns anyone’s thoughts about memory cards for the RX10 IV. I’m not really interested in maximizing the camera’s video capabilities, but I do have some interested in getting optimal burst shooting performance from it.

Rightly or wrongly I purchased  this Sony 64 GB Tough card. -

I was considering a SanDisk card with comparable specs. , although the Sony Tough’s minimum write speed was higher at 90 vs 30 MB/sec. and the prices were close.

I’m wondering if the Sony Tough card will be overkill for my use = likely 97% one potato, two potato single-shot shooting , with occasional burst shooting mixed in, and little or no video?

Finally, I’ve heard others say the Sony Tough card stuck in their cameras at least initially. I used my new one  last night and had no such problem installing it or removing in from my RX10 IV, or my computer.
