Default coolpix 995 memory speed limit?

I was out shopping for memory for my coolpix...

I came across the usual garden variety zoomies behind the counters... one guy even claimed that they only carried 1x media... I politely said thanks... & left...

I got to one of the bigger camera stores & was told that in the coolpix 995 the firmware could only handle up to about 8x... and that buying faster media would be a waste of $'s...

I said thanks, but then I started wondering if buying the 24x lexar media would be worth the extra $'s...

does anybody know if this is true?

Are you going to be shooting in Tiff, or movie mode? If the answer is no, then with jpeg's you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Also unless you shoot continuouly the camera buffer the frames anyway to compensate for the slower flash writes...

If you're shooting in Tiff or movie, you'll notice the waiting time between shots (or the 40s movie captures) is shorter as the x-number increases. Is this worth it ...?
