I know this flies in the face of "latest and greatest", but I'm still using 5 yr-old cards from my 40D with no problems. If you're shooting sports, filling the buffer, waiting for it to clear, filling the buffer again, etc., then perhaps you need the latest and greatest. But you'd also need 64GB cards, and I doubt you'd be asking if you were in that situation.

The camera's buffer and I/O is much more limiting than any card you can buy today, IMHO. Just buy a decent quality 16GB card and you'll be fine. (again, unless yoiu need more than 600 shots at a time and are firing unending bursts for minutes at a time).

No video? $40 for a Sandisk 16GB Ultra is fine. $90 for the same capacity ExtremePro is jsuthtrowing away money.
