5D Mark III buffer happiness

Tested with Sandisk CF Extreme Pro 16GB 90MB/s UDMA 7, ISO 100 RAW 33 frames at 6fps before hit buffer, ISO 800 RAW 28 frames at 6fps before hit buffer, buffer (13 frames) fully cleared in about 3s. At low speed continuous (3fps) you can just keep shooting as long as you like, you never get near filling the buffer. However, if you're writing JPEGs at the same time to the SD card, all this amazingness goes to pot, buffer still clears pretty quickly though. Still, a great improvement on anything I've used before (5D, 5D II, 1D IIn, 1D III) and a boon for weddings or catwalk.
