Question: I have a San Disk Ultra 11 one gb memory card in my K100D.
Not enough storage for Raw shots. I'm thinking of getting a 2gb or 4gb card. Is the speed a factor in these cards. Like do I need an "ultra" card. Any suggestions for a good brand at low cost. P.S. you can see I'm getting ready for Spring! Freddie
Most of the current SD cards in the market is just fine for the K100D. The difference in write will not be great. But if you will use your cards in another (faster) camera, then a faster card will help.

See for more details:- RiceHigh's Pentax Blog: K100D SD Card Write Speed Test

But my advice is don't intend to "invest" on SD cards for future use, as your card's value will be halved for every quarter. So, just think about your current need is mostly adequate.

I'd call 13 to 20s a pretty big difference (ie: over 50%).

Yes, it can be seen in this way. But, my point is that no matter it is 13s or 20s for 3 6M RAW files is pretty SLOW indeed.
