I already have compacts that use SD cards, and I hate handling them.  They're too small & awkward.

I agree, but I just wish CF sockets didn't have all those vulnerable pins. SD is much better in that respect.

ever had problems with the pins?

i never broke them to date or had any contact probelms

CF is faster still and I like the more robust CF design - SDXC is just a bit flumsy but my MBA hs a built in reader - that would be very welcome!

I don't see the problem with the pins either. Every camera and reader i've had made it pretty much impossible to bend the pins, unless somehow you got some small hard piece of FOD between card and pins on insertion or something.

The small size of SD cards that some dislike doesn't bother me.  Yes I prefer the CF size but with large capacity cards its not like you're having to handle and change them in the field that often anyway.  Although CF cards can be faster, you pay a hell of price premium versus equivalent SD cards with sufficient bandwidth for video/frequent burst shooting. One thing I won't miss when CF cards are defunct is the cost!  I'm certainly seeing more gains than losses when CF dies as a format.
