getting closer and closer to pulling the trigger.

What do you all suggest for memory cards and extra batteries (does sterlingtek offer same model, I've got for 5d and love them)?

Also, I noticed multiple memory options on the camera? Is 1 format for still and 1 for video?

I've got a mix of CF Sandisk Extreme III, Ultra II, and Kingston x133. Wondering if I need something faster with the 10fps

The speed of the card does not affect the fps, it affect the speed the buffer writes to the card - the faster the card, the faster the buffer empties (up to the cameras max write speed). I use Trancend 400x cf cards and am very happy with them.
The 1DmkIV has 2 card slots, 1 cf and 1 sdhc, and can be set to write to both, write raw to one and jpegs to the other, or write to one and auto-switch to the other when the first is full - great for shooting long bursts of BIF or motorsports.
Sterlingtek does not list an LP-E4 equivalent, though there some on ebay. The LP-E4
has a chip to monitor battery performance and health and indicate when the battery
need a recondition cycle. AFAIK, none of the non-Canon batteries are chipped, though I cannot say that they don't exist.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Eric

Yeah, a spare battery is an option. They last forever. I shoot a lot and I bought a spare with my first MKIII. I swap it out now and then to use it, but I've never had to change one in the field. A long day may well be 5 32 GB cards with RAW (1200 to 1400 a card) and the battery will be low but never ran out. Pretty awesome battery...

Cards, I use GMONSTERS in the MK4 from www.DVNATION.COM (external link). 32 GB CF writes at 50Mg/sec for $149... Got 8 of them, super fast (say 2 to possibly 3 RAWs a second)... Buffer clears up long before the next airplane gets into position.

SD cards, I used TRANSCEND 16GB and shoot the still (non moving) pics on it. When there is action, I switch over to the CF cards. So I save the fast cards.

MK4 is an awesome camera, if I could have only ONE that would be it.
