Is a 160MB/s CF Card a Good Idea?
10 months ago

I'm looking at buying the faster SanDisk CF that has max read of 160MB/s and reported constant read of around 90MB/s. This will be for my 7DThe card is definitely not cheap, so my question is: Does the camera itself have any limitations in writing or reading that won't be able to use the card to its full potential?? In other words, is there a bottleneck somewhere else so that I'll get the same results between a 120MB/s card and 160MB/sec card?

Cheers
