"RE: D600 SD memory card speeds"

I'd bet the two cameras have essentially the same processing engine but I am unaware of a teardown on a D800.>He measured ~30 MB/s on 45 MB/s rated card>and 40 MB/s on 90 MB/s card. I doubt that the D800 has UHS104>(208 MHz) or UHS-II SD interface...Just speculation on my part, but I think you are right. The timing of development of these two cameras was somewhat before the UHS104 spec.This has been an interesting thread. Thanks for doing the test and your observations.Regards,
