    The D7200 will take another shot as soon as there is room for one shot in the buffer, but then it will stop again until the buffer has cleared enough for another shot, etc. This will slow you to one shot every secondor so, IME. Of course, the card used will make a difference in how fast the buffer can clear room.

    Sandisk Extreme Pro cards like this:

    seem to be the fastest.

    I've found 260-300 write speeds on up. Do you have an idea of how much of a difference that would have over a 95 for clearing the buffer?

    There is a limit to how fast the camera can clear the buffer and I don't think cards with a speed over 95 will have any effect.

    Doing an online search, I came across these two things. The first is a discussion on Fred Miranda where a guy talks about testing the write speed of 44 cards in the D7200. Granted this was from back in 2015 but might give you some information.

    https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1357776

    This second link is the actual comparison of his findings:

    Based on Harks article it looks like you are correct. Thanks everyone for all the information, I really appreciate it!

    Those are UHS-II cards, which are not supported in the D7200. The fastest you'll get using any card in the D7200 will be about 95.
