Lexar 64Gb UHS-II 150Mb/s for £29.99

This looks to be a good deal at under 30 quid for a Lexar 64GB SDXC UHS-II Card in Eco-Friendly Packaging, sold and delivered by Amazon:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07F9TNN...395841_TE_dp_1

In real-life use in the E-M1ii I find these just as speedy as the 300Mb/s version (of which I have one) and they're a lot cheaper. Other capacities also available via that link, but they're not such good value IMHO.

I find it interesting that you find the speed comparable between the versions in an E-M1-ii. If you are referring to write speeds, this implies that the camera may be setting a limit rather than the card. Do you have any comparative timings for particular types of data? It's of interest to me as I currently use Lexar 150MB/s cards in the same camera.



There are comparisons of both read and write speeds on the web at https://havecamerawilltravel.com/pho...test-sd-cards/

Iím talking subjectively: the key point is that with either card Iíve never had the camera halt taking images in long bursts because the internal buffer was full. It may well take longer to write to the slower card, of course, but the slower card is fast enough for me in real use.

Iíve seen comments on dpreview that the E-M1ii is not able to take full advantage of the faster card in the top slot, but I havenít checked that.

I ordered one and itís arrived - it seems to work just like my others and the only real difference is that it doesnít come in one of those little milky-grey flip cases. Since Iíve got loads of spares from earlier cards this isnít an issue.

If your current card is adequate for the type of photography you do, then carry on resisting but, in my own case, I found these cards provide a considerable advantage.



It's a pity that smaller sizes don't seem to be available (at correspondingly lower prices) since, for still photography, I like 16MB capacity because it does not hold "too many eggs in one basket"
