Re: Here's my plan for 5D Mark III - does it make sense?

I'd be much more concerned with the card corruption! How are you transferring your images? I've used the expensive Lexar cards for years--thousands of assignments, hundreds of thousands of frames--and never lost an image.

I use a card reader and do a simple "drag and drop" into a new file on my computer for each assignment (I'm a photojournalist). I do NOT use a program that ingests or renames or indexes my images during transfer. Then I format the card in camera after each assignment.

If you are doing this, too, never mind. Good luck!
