What does this mean?

"Camera performance is excellent, and the new high speed focus modes scream. The burst modes are impressive as well, especially with a high speed SD card. "

I am interested in using the burst mode. Therefore, is a high speed SD card something i should get for my soon-to-be-boughtpany z5?

Size, brand and on-line place to buy?

Yes, write-speed is important, especially if you are shooting in burst mode. I recommend to minimally get a 512MB card, ideally 1 GB or 2 GB, depending on your needs. I got a kingmax 60x or 66x 512 card from newegg.com. Worked great on my FZ20, and now on my FZ30.

Thanks. I ordered a Kingmax 60 speed - 512mb

Still waiting for it to arrive. I'm suppose to get my FZ5 tomorrow. Yeah! Let the learning curve begin!

No, but if you find it, let me know. The cheapest ones seem to still be at around $50.

I went to that site and the cheapest I found was $59.95. If you see one for $35, I'll buy it too. Meanwhile I am waiting for the 150x 1GB card from Newegg for $49.95 to be off of backorder. My 512 card serves me fine for now.
