    Just wondering what SD card to get. What's the camera max transfer rate? I've tried to find this information and can't. Does anyone have the info from a reliable source? (Also wondering the same for the GX1).

    I did some continuous shooting comparisons with a Sandisk 95/95mbps card and a Sandisk 45/45mbps card, principally checking to see whether the faster card would clear the buffer faster. It did not. That's in contrast to my EM5, which does take advantage of the faster card. Whether there's a difference between a 45/45mbps card and a 30mbps card I can't tell you.
