K7 Burst Shooting & SDHC Cards

Currently I am using a 4gb Sandisk Extreme II card but I am looking to purchase a much larger 16gb or 32gb card, is there a great speed difference if I get my hands on the Extreme III as opposed to the II?



Also so far I am pretty impressed with the K7's burst capability, stick it on 2MP jpeg and its like a machine gun hehehe.

I use a 16GB Sandisk Extreme III 30mb/sec SDHC card with my K-7 and it's much faster transfering my HD videos to my Mac using a Sandisk 30mb/sec reader than the Sandisk Ultra II 15mb/sec SDHC cards. I never had any problems shooting HD video like some have with the slower cards.

I am not sure about other cards. But a Sandisk Extreme III (no 30Mb/s label) is sufficient so that the K-7 bursts 5.2fps in one star 14.6MP Jpg mode forever, i.e., beyond the 40 images limit as stated in the specs.
