I'd be curious if anyone here sees the benefit of an S Series card over the original H Series XQD cards in a D4? The D4 can already shoot roughly 90 14-bit RAW shots in a single burst on the first cards. How does the faster card help? Downloading from the CF card reader to the computer would be faster, but where else?

"Faster" definitely makes sense on a D800 with the larger file sizes and more requent filling of the buffer. I haven't done it yet, but I'd like to get one of the 1000x 64gig CF cards for the D800. I put one of the 32 gig 1000x CF cards in the D4's second slot. Given a choice, I'd have preferred to see the XQD/CF combo on the D800 over the CF/SD card combo.
