Re: Fastest CF card for a 1DS MKII? Help!

I purchased the 1DS Mark II in 2006 and I am still using it. Typically I use RAW + large JPG, if the Jpegs are good, I do not keep the RAWs, if they need improvement then of course I use the RAWs. The memory cards are an old compact flash Kingston Ultimate 133x 4GB and an SDHC card 8GB PNY Professional (20 MB/s).

I do not recall having been bothered by the slowness of the camera, even when I shot in continuous mode (for BIF).
In any case DPR provided a (simple) performance analysis which can be found at:

I was tempted by the 5D Mark III but I decided to wait for the next one. I prefer to add to my collection of L lenses..
Enjoy the camera it is a really good instrument.
