Thanks for the advice Bana. You reaffirmed what I already figured so I'll just drop a little more money to get the faster card. Plus There's a rebate thing going on right now anyway. Might as well just go for it.
Just to make others aware, Sandisk is offering pretty good rebate deals on their extreme cards line. The more cards you buy the better the deal. Here is a link. Sandisk Rebate
Just make sure to buy from an authorized dealer. Must be purchased by September 26. If you combine this with bing cashback, mrrebates.com, and ebay bucks you could get a pretty good deal.
Tamron is also offering some really good rebates also on lenses purchased between Aug 15 and December 31. Again make sure to buy from an authorized dealer. Tamron Rebate
Combined with bing cashback, mrrebates.com, and ebay bucks you could also get a good deal on a new lens.
If anyone needs help with bing cashback or also finding an authorized dealer on ebay just shoot me a PM.
