Is there any reason why I shouldn't get this memory card for my 6D besides the price? I ask because 64GB seems almost too good to be true for such a small card. I basically want to be able to use the 6D to it's full capability with minimal limitations.

Thanks

I would buy 2x32GB cards, I don't like to put all eggs to the same basket. :)

Though with two baskets it is easier to drop one ;)

Thanks for your input clacson and Justaddwata. Judging by what's been said in this thread so far (and mostly what hasn't been said) I'm thinking that the cost is basically the only downside. I ended up purchasing the 32gb because it's cheaper and I've never really ran into problems with the 32gb card on my 7D.

Shooting RAW+LJPEG on my 5D3, I can get about 425 pictures on a 16gb CF. I only filled it once...and that's why I have the SDHC card as 'overflow'. Worked great, except that the SDHC card was noticably slower at times.

Shooting RAW only, I would estimate about 500-550 pictures on a 16gb CF...and that's getting 33-35 MEG of data per picture (23mp camera)
