Has anyone done any speed tests with any Canon camera on the SanDisk 16GB Extreme PRO SDHC UHS-II Memory Card.

I've heard that a lot of cameras are not able to utilize the speed of this card.

Any recent tests or experience appreciated

Thanks

I know of no existing camera (in May 2014) using UHS-II, but in the next few months should appear at Photokina.

The Fuji XT1 claims to.

"The World's first compatibility with UHS-II format SD memory cards. With an UHS-II SD memory card installed, the data writing speed in continuous mode increases to about twice that of a conventional card."

Presume unless Canon are boasting about it, none of the cameras are compatible. So not worth the expense

The next gen mirrorless will definitely take advantage of it because of their higher frame-rate and sustained write requirements but I don't think we'll see any Canon DSLRs that can really benefit from it until the higher megapixel sensors arrive, assuming Canon doesn't switch to CFast/XQD for it's high-end DSLRs. UHS is really more for the videographers than photographers at this point.
