I will be using the SanDisk 16Gb SDHC Extreme Class 10 UHS-1 (max read/write = 45 MB/sec) in my coming 7100. I think that's as good a choice as any; you could go to 32 Gb at 45MB/sec, but the 8 Gb cards only reach 30 MB/sec. You (or I) don't need the Extreme Pro at 95 MB/sec.
Never criticize a man until you walk a mile in his shoes. Then you'll be a mile away and have his shoes!

Especially considering the lousy buffer spec on this camera. What the heck, the 16 GB cards were only $60. And according to Imaging Resource, yes the camera has the higher clock speed required to use these cards to their maximum.
Om my D800 with the EXPEED 3 processor it writes about 28meg a second using a ScanDisk Extreme Pro 95.
Like others have said a card with 45meg speed should be more than adequate. What I think is more critical is not to go cheap. I have always used ScanDisk cards and find them to be highly reliable. Most of the complaints you hear are from people saving a few dollars by buying off of Ebay where the seller and his products are unknown.
