Which Sandisk's are you buying? The price difference between the 300mb/s & 95mb/s is steep! Like you, I want cards that write fast to the camera (high speed stills).

Are you referring to CF (as in the original post) or SD cards.

We don't know you style of photography and equipment so just a suggestion based on the image below. Based on a Google search and what is likely you website all I see is more or less static images, so the slower speed card is likely more than ample. The card on the left is about $50 and the one on the right about $200. The one on the left has a "C" with 10 in the middle and the one on the right has a Roman numeral II as opposed to I on the left. Perhaps you should research what that terminology means and how it might affect you photography style.

I wasn't referring to either SD or Compact flash. I was simply asking which Sandisk the OP was going with. I also mentioned that I shoot high speed stills and care about write speeds within the camera. I understand the terminology, but that doesn't explain if the steep price is justified with in camera performance.

Thanks for the post anyhow.

What exactly do you mean by "high speed stills"? Are you referring to a burst of 10 shots, shutter button down? You website does not lead one to believe that to be the case. There is a point where the capability of the card exceeds the capability of the camera, at which point you are wasting money unless you are looking to the future and improved bus speed in the camera itself.

The question was about CF cards. Personally I use the Lexar Professional 1066x cards which are UDMA7 compliant. When talking with Canon they said these cards (and similar spec Sandisk cards) get the most from their cameras. I know when I shoot on my bodies with the Lexar 1066 card they easily beat the published specs for burst shooting.

I got 2 64gb Extreme Pro cards from the San Disk store - $74 each.

I wouldn't be surprised if Longsys has no intention of picking those CF cards back up and is being reticent with retailers about the line's status.

Left is UHS-I extreme pro. USH-I has interface limit of 104MB/s. Taken away overhead, 95MB/s is pretty good max speed. 5D4 has an UHS-I SD card slot. So this is a good fit.

Right UHS-II extreme pro, interface speed is much higher bandwidth at 312MB/s. This is a overkill for 5D4 because it doesn't have UHS-II interface. In fact, UHS-II card can be slower in UHS-I backward compatibility mode. So my suggestion is don't waste your money on this
