UHS-II V60
Lexar 1800x V60 176 MB/s 242 MB/s 93 MB/s
Sony M Tough V60 155 MB/s 268 MB/s 99 MB/s
Sony E v60 142 MB/s 252 MB/s 93 MB/s
Delkin Prime v60 98 MB/s 275 MB/s 81 MB/s

The conclusion:

“If you stick with Lexar, Sony or Delkin you’ll have no issues with memory card performance. A few other brands like Hoodman Steel and Amplim were also running well in the camera, but those generally would not be my top picks unless there are some nice sales going on. Lexar, Delkin, and Sony all have great bundles with readers and are producing the best cards including CFxB, CFxA, and SD. They are the three brands I personally use the most and they have always been dependable.”
