    Hi Everybody,

    I've been fortunate enough to get my hands on an A7RII. Unfortunately I have to wait until later before I can really let loose with her.

    I was chatting with our regular friend Robbie36 in a PM chat and I asked him for his take on the write speed of the A7rII. I've seen a few posts in the flickr user pools from users saying that the write speed with a UHS 1 card and 95MB/s read/write is too slow - approx 2seconds. Of course with a larger 42MP sensor it's to be expected that there will be larger files. This is to be expected with medium format resolution and an acceptable trade for studio shots, landscape work etc..
    However I was wondering if there is a work around....
    Has anybody tried the UHS2 280MB/s cards? Do these make a difference? Is the camera even compatible ?
