I am going to need a new CF card for the 7D Mark II. I will be shooting some sports and no video. 32GB should do it. I already have an SD card Sandisk Extrene Pro 95MB/s 8GB Can I get away with using the SD card only?

I think you mean 32 Gb and no mb.:)
I use Sandisk extreme pro 32 GB / 160 Mb/s. CF.
Very fast and reliable.

Yes, you can get away with only the SD card. The dual card slots give you the flexibility use either slot individually or both at once.

Haven in one slot Sd sandisk power extreme 16 GB /95 Mb/s
Second slot Cf Sandisk power extreme 32 GB/ 160 Mb/s
I had a couple of times to forget to set the card back.
But the other was inside ,otherwise i had to go back home, when i went out out to shoot.

You don't need anything extreme, as long as you don't shoot more than 30 raw in one burst, you won't see any difference between any current cards, even compared to the fastest Lexar 1000x!

Go with some Transcend, Kingston CF cards, they are fine and for the price you'll get more Gigabytes.

I've got a couple of these and they are great. Cannot beat the price either.

Since it doesn't come out for retail until end of November, you have plenty of time to pick up a CF if you want to use one. Yes your 8GB SD card should work but as you said, having a 32GB CF on-board would most likely ensure you have enough storage available.

This 32GB card works fine for me. http://www.amazon.com …8-1&keywords=32gb+cf+car​d (external link)
