Subject: [Leica] fastest SD card for M8.2

15 seconds or 8 seconds sounds unacceptably slow. I shoot RAW only,  
and the save time on my Sandisk cards is a fraction of a second. Can  
it really be that adding the JPEG results in such ridiculous save  
times? If so, yet another reason to forget JPEG...
