If there is one point which I think may be improved with my camera, it is how long it takes to process a picture and return to action after exposing in life view. Now, my memory cards were bought with keeping my budget in mind: a 32GB SD and an 8GB CF from Scandisk, both with speeds of 20 or 30 MB/S. Now, I read in a review on Luminous Landscape that the processing time can be brought down to about 2 seconds - very wishful for me.
Can anyone tell whether there is really such a big difference in different cards, and which cards are the best for the D800 - I remember reading that some tend to give problems.
