I've pretty much transitioned exclusively to MicroSD and recently picked up a 32G Lexar deal with tiny USB2 reader. I can share with more things (phone, tablet, PC) this way. Works great in my IIs. I note that many of these are sold as phone-use memory but cameras don't seem to read the print

p.s. for those who dislike SD-card ejection with newer Pentax bodies, this solves it - just pull the micro card out!

Good luck with that. I've experienced a much higher failure rate with microSD (5 failures across multiple brands of card) than with regular SD (1 ever, over a much longer period of time). That includes the Samsung microSD in my Samsung phone, which shorted out and threatened to burn a hole through my pants pocket!

Not as big a deal in a phone where most pics/media are throwaways, but I'd never risk my SLR photos on a microSD.

Right, and the microsd cards are typically a lot slower. Doesn't matter for older Pentax DSLRs, but on the K-3 you'll definitely notice it.

Samsung is No1 manufacturer in NAND flash field. Most of the NAND flash and memory in VGA Card, Smartphone, Tablet, Laptop... is Samsung

Good call. I forgot about that. I remember opening a lot of phones and computers to find Samsung stamped everywhere. I just didn't translate that to SD cards. Tha,ks.

Alas Adorama is charging US$60 for UPS shipping to Australia. So no deal.

I recently ordered some similar Samsung SDXC cards direct from Amazon, and shipping and handling came to about $8.
