    Which Memory Card? - Olympus UK E-System User Group

    Scroll down for this....

    I would just like to reiterate, that if you want the full performance of the E-M5 for high speed burst shooting (not the shooting rate but the buffer-clearing rate), you need a 600x or 95MB/sec card. UHS-1 is not enough and Class 10 simply means it will do at least 10MB/sec. For example:

    SanDisk Extreme Pro 8GB SDHC Memory Card: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    Lexar 16GB Professional 600x SDHC UHS-I Memory Card: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    There are other threads about this here as well.

    BTW, the 8GB cards aren't quite as fast as the 16GB ones in real life.

    What's with the bitly links? I believe others' referral links are a no-no on mu-43.com

    There was a test on Image Resource (IIRC) that showed the difference in buffer clearing speed - I thought it was pretty compelling.
