Thanks. I might get one after I do some comparison. I need to get a 16GB for my 5D2.

How good is Lexar brand? How does it compare to Sandisk and Kingston? I like both. My current card is 8GB Sandisk Extreme iii, which transfer speed is 30MB/s. This lexar seem to be the same speed. Are the speed numbers generally accurate for comparison sake?

Looks like the 200X is only for read, and not write :(

From lexar's website, write speeds are lower: http://www.lexar.com …lash-cf-card?category=213 (external link)


Quote:
*Up to 30MB/s read transfer, write speeds lower. Speeds based on TestMetrix certified tester. *x=150Kbytes/s.

I just bought one for myself and one for my brother. I searched around, and its the best deal to be had right now. Even slower cards are more money.

Lexar as a brand is fine. As to quality. The Lexar Pro (gold color) is rock solid. I do NOT have the same faith in the Platinum line after a couple failures.

This one is cheap. Why is this one soooo much cheaper than all the other ones?

The cheapest 16G SanDisk is twice the price.

See above. You get what you pay for. I've had too many failures with the Platinum line to trust them. If you check out the appropriate forum you'll see um not alone.

For one the Sandisk card you mentioned is rated for 30MBps read and write (which is what is important for in-camera shooting performance). And secondly, it is a Sandisk :)

Do you think this is sufficient for a continuous 6 fps raw from a 50D and/or continuous 8 fps raw/1080 video from 7d?

Thanks!

Actually, if you look on this test, you will see that write speed is actually LOWER than stated, even for Sandisk.

If you look on other websites, you will see that this EXACT card will sell for the normal price. You can buy it for its normal price to feel safer and to provide peace of mind for yourself.
1) Adorama (external link) = peace of mind paying more for it.
2) Amazon (external link)
3) NewEgg (external link)

Go ahead and get peace of mind paying more for it :lol:
