I do look at the memory card reviews but do not base my purchases on the read/write speeds of the cards. It always seemed to me that the differences reported in the reviews did not have a discernible difference in the "real" world.

I've had to rethink that position.

I have 3 of the more recent 120GB Sony XQD cards which I had been using exclusively with a Z 7II. Another 3 of the older 128GB Sony XQD cards have been used in a Z 6II and a Z 6.

While saving camera setting to a BIN file I kept noticing the Z 7II was saving the settings noticeably faster than the Z 6II, which didn't seem right since both have dual processors. On a hunch I tried the 120GB Sony cards in the Z 6II, which resulted in the Z 6II saving the settings BIN just as fast as the Z 7II.

So, the cards used can make a noticeable difference in how fast the camera saves files to the media card. If the difference is clearly detectable (without using calibrated measuring instruments) when saving a small settings BIN file then larger files can be expected to accentuate the read/write speed difference between the two media cards.

My strategy going forward will be to use the fastest cards I have on hand as the primary media in all my camera bodies and carry the slower, previous generation cards as backup.

I'm beginning to think one could go broke trying to keep up with the latest media cards.
