I am wondering the same question. I have a Canon 5D Markiii(5D3) on the way. I read an article on wiki that a 133x card writes 20mb/s. So at the shooting rate of 6fps at about 23mb RAW files that would be about 900x speed or 138mb/s. I am looking at the Lexar 1000x cards but wonder how fast the camera actually will write to the card.

Does the new mark III take both CF cards and SD cards?

yes. It's similar to the last gen 1D series. Can be overrun or redundant.


If you can read this, you don't need a macro | 7D + 5DIII + Waaaay too much spent....

So would the Sandisk 90MB/s be on the money...both the SDHC and CF cards?

A Lexar 600x, Transcend 600x (external link)or a SanDisk Extreme CF card would be ideal.

How would they(90mb/s) be ideal if the camera is capturing at 138 mp/s? I'm just wondering what the write to memory speed is?
