tkpenalty: No RAW support. That's kinda pointless...

CombatMedic -
Some of us shoot RAW only, with our iPads simply pulling the embedded JPEG out of the RAW file after transfer. It's cleaner and uses less space, although the quality is worse than using RAW+JPEG.

The real question for me is: Will this card function properly as an SD card and not destroy my photos. My experience with previous with previous Eye-Fi products has been so abysmal, I'm not sure I'm willing to give this another try.

I would actually argue that while lens can't produce the same amount of "background blur" as an equivalent FF lens/body combo, it actually can provide as much or similar "subject isolation".

Subject isolation for me isn't just about DoF - it's also about the focal length you're using, how it influences your distance to your subject and hence the perspective of the shot and how much background "clutter" is present. With the same amount of DoF present in two photos shot with different focal lengths (and different distances to maintain a consistent subject size) the wider focal length will result in less subject isolation and more background clutter.

In my experience, focal length is actually the more important factor in terms of isolation - that's why in practice the 45-200mm actually provides a good amount of isolation at long focal lengths, despite it's relatively slow aperture.
