Re: CF or SDHC

When I first got my 5diii I put both a CF and an SD card in with the SD card set to write only when the CF card is full i.e. no simultaneous writing. The SD card has never been used.

To utilize the 6fps to its max then a CF card is a must.

The article linked above which talks about write speed to the CF card when an SD card is in the slot is a little misleading although it is corrected in the comments section. Unless the camera is set to write to both cards at the same time then there is no effect on the CF card write speed of merely having an SD card in the slot as well.
