UHS-II Memory Cards on K3

Hi,

Is it worth getting this cards for the K3?
SanDisk Extreme PRO SDHC/SDXC UHS-II Memory Cards
Or are they faster to what the K3 can handle?

Thanks

The Fujifilm X-T1 is the only camera today that supports the new UHS-II SD cards but if you use the new Sandisk UHS-II USB 3.0 card reader connected to a USB 3.0 port on your computer it will upload your photo and video files at up to 280MB/s . Future cameras with 4K 60p video mode should support the new UHS-II SD cards.

The UHS-II cards have a second row of pins, so they actually require different hardware than the traditional cards to get the extra speed. I'm sure Pentax future models will add full support for them
