If you have the luxury of access to the replica servers (which is the
case for the reconciliation service, right?), then I doubt any API is
going to beat a raw SQL query:
$ sql wikidata 'SELECT page_title FROM page WHERE page_namespace = 0 AND
page_title IN ("Q12345", "Q123456", "Q1234567")'
| page_title |
| Q12345 |
| Q123456 |
This shows that Q1234567 doesn’t exist. (Someone with more SQL knowledge
could probably turn that into a “yes/no” kind of reply, too.)

Which service is the fastest that can return when a
QID is valid ?
OpenRefine is trying to improve its reconciling when folks already have
lists of QID's and just want to ensure they are still valid and exist.
