    SD cards write speed : SanDIsk

    As a canon user I have a collection of Compact Flash cards that should last me a while.
    But with the SD slot in the 5DIII I am looking at the SanDisk SD cards for the second slot and wondering about the write speed:

    ExtremePro 95MB/s
    Extreme 45MB/s
    Ultra 30MB/s

    What speed does the 5DIII write:

    I have always been a fan of using smaller MB cards and a lot of them.
    The reason is if a card get corrupt or loose one I have not lost the entire day.
    I change about every 500. ( I shoot 3000+ at a wedding).
    I plan on shooting and saving the images to both cards as an added security.

    I have always used SanDisk in my Canons and really not thinking of changing unless better quality exists.

    Thank you

    David....Thanks for the links. That is an impressive drop off in performance going from CF (up to 80 MB/s) to SD cards (<20 MB/s).

    I was also pleased to see how similar Galbraiths results were to our tests on the 7D.
