does the 5d m2 write fast enough to make these cards worth the money?

I don't know, but at this price, they're still $10 cheaper than the Sandisk 60mb/s Extreme cards.

Yeah I bought 2 as well. Very good price. I have 2 other 16GB San Disk 60mb/s that i got for $55 each. I'm thinking of picking up a 7D off CLP or waiting a year and getting a 5dmk3... either way, these cards should hold up fine.

Awesome! Picked up a couple myself :)

Question, how often do you guys replace your cards with new ones?

Writing an individual file doesn't take long... it's a matter of your shooting style and whether or not you will be filling up the buffer. Honestly with a 5D2, I don't think you need a this fast at full burst. Who should their finger on the shutter for that long, anyway? Sports shooters, essentially. 5D2 isn't a sports camera... for as many bursts as it would take to fill the buffer, the focus system would have already aimed at something else.

Still a nice card to have just in case.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

Cool. This card comes out to about $3.75/gb. Decent price I guess.

How are kingston cards? I see one for $48 for 16gb 600x ($3/gb).

The main advantage of x600 is the speed it takes to dump the card onto the computer. IMO.

I've never found transfer speeds to be an issue. I set up the destination folder, plug the card in, and import them w/ Lightroom. I then go on and do other things until they're done.

@mag10, if your buying 8gb 60mbs CF cards for $40, you either need them right now, and there's no sale going on, or your just paying too much. I bought Lexar Pro 16gb 400x (60mbs) cards last year for $50/each. Granted, that was a good deal a year ago, but it seems like the normal price now. That being said, I did see an Extreme 8gb 60mbs card in Staples for $49.99 yesterday. It was the only CF card they had!

no...

I have some old, slow 8 g cards that work just fine in my MKII

Remember the MP race? They moved on to card speed.

i think card makers realized people now have enough cards with the right size..now they need to get them to buy the faster versions of them.

I'm holding out for a 16GB deal.

8GB is simply way too small. (For me.)

What are you shooting? I moved to 16gb cards because I got a deal on them. An 8gb card holds ~300 RAW images from my 7D (~18mb each).
