I'm through buying CF cards. I have more than enough for the cameras I have that need them. On the D800 I stopped using CF cards in it when I got the 128GB SanDisk card that works perfectly. I also use a card reader and I much prefer the ease of using the SD cards, with CF cards you always have to be careful with the pins.

I just cant bother with CF - with my old Canon gear ds3 and mk4 i used the sd only. Same on D800s now. All macs come with sd reader, sort of cuts out one cable and gadget...

I'll just stick to my 1 32GB CF card so I don't accidently stick the SD card in the wrong slot...

Rofl, right? :-) I use mine for overflow. Wish the 5d3s sd card slot was faster, it has the annoying tendency to switch card slots on you if you take the cf out to copy files off it (gfs cam, but i use it sometimes). D800 didnt skimp on the sd slot, thankfully.

The slow SD slot and how it switches to SD as the main playback card if I take the CF card out even with the camera off--Canon at their brilliant best, unfortunately.

Yes, drives me nuts. That and how with image review on, when it's showing the image review, you can't scroll back to the previous shot...hafta hit regular play button and whatnot, confuses the crap outta me, I'd prolly turn image review off but my gf likes it on. Other than that, though, I absolutely love the 5d3, many was more than my d800, lol.

In the spirit of the thread, here's another 24-70mm shot. I'll admit that Canon 24-70mm f4 IS is a bit tempting, though. Love the 24-70mm Nikon rendering style though, so .. nice..smooth, yet vibrant and contrasty.

Some rocks someone had set up, I thought they looked cute so I took a pic of 'em. (Out by the waterfall from the last page)

I'm planning to upgrade my D70 soon (yeah yeah)

Anyways while I ordered my D70 new I'm looking at a used Nikon and it's been awhile since I looked at Nikon's so I think someone here said to look at getting a D7000 over a D300s?

It seems the D7000 does better in low light but the D300s has better AF and better weather sealing, but I've taken my D70 out in the rain pretty often but I'm sure some have been caught in a bad storm, me I was just in 5 min of light rain :p

I don't know about the D300s having a better AF, the AF on the D7000 is great. Since you have held off this long (I know, I bought a D70 not long after it was introduced) I would hang on. The D300s and D7000 are overdue for replacements and it looks like the fantastic 24MP sensor will be in them.

I'm pretty sure the difference will be the build and weather sealing.

You need to spend more time in the Nikon thread. :lol: Rick has had a D800 for a few months now.
