Re: I cannot see the point of such huge cards

The card size may mean not having to change cards very often, but so what.

That's the problem; the card is very durable itself but the pins in the camera may be damaged. And then you have a camera that doesn't work, isn't that wonderful. Large CF cards allow you to avoid or reduce the probability of the most common hardware problem with CF cards (mechanical damage to the pins).

I use 8-16 GB cards (Sandisk Extreme) on my D700 all the time. No problems. The camera certainly supports 16 GB.
