I was trying to avoid buying UHS-II cards since I don't really need mega-burst shooting capability, but at 2-3 secs per image, it seriously delays reviewing the image.

Odd...
Those Ultras at 80Mbps would be the read speed, but what would the write speed be? The Extreme cards would give a higher priority to write speed though or at least I believe the write speed is not so far behind the read speed. I've only been using Extremes for several years (CF before the E-M5).
