Before upgrading to the 5D mk3, I use CF cards exclusively.  I don't shoot video and rarely shoot bursts for action.  The Transcend 400x series is more than enough for me.

After getting the mk3, I bought a SD card because it cost less than CF.  I then discovered it is very useful to have 2 cards in my camera.  I can switch from one to another automatically without worrying about when to swap cards.

When shooting events for friends, I write raw files to the CF and JPG to the SD.  At the end of the evening, I just handed them the SD card.  I can go home to edit my raw files with no pressure of finishing in a hurry.
