Does anyone know what the fastest speed the D800 can write to the memory cards? I can't seam to find that information anywhere. Maybe I am looking to hard.

Thanks,
Bill

Good question.
The D4 is supposed to do in excess of 200MBs.
I would expect it to be the same, but it may be slower do to having to process bigger files.

Thanks Roger,

I guess the figures are not out yet and that is why I couldn't find them. You would think they would post those figures so we would know what cards to buy. That information will give me an idea what memory card to buy. I'll get a couple of 90-95 MBS as I don't shoot a burst of pictures very often but it will help to get it off the card into the computer. That will put about 1-2 pictures per second on the card depending what format I am using at the time. I am not sure how fast they can take the SD cards in the future, I guess we will have to wait and see. Top end cards just cost to much for what you get, and I wait till they come down.

Thanks again,
Bill

Yes, the fastest cards I can afford are usually 2nd tier.
I plan on using Lexar 600x compact flash and 45MBs SanDisk SDHC cards.
