Re: I just want photos taken in Live View to write to the BUFFER and NOT the CF card.

buy an extreme pro CF card, and don't use and SD card.

first you start a thread asking for any guesses on what a new firmware update may bring.  however, when a perfectly sound response does appear, you disregard it.

the issue of liveview writing directly to the memory card, bypassing the buffer, is a known issue and is a perfect example of something that should be fixed via a new firmware.  there is no need for the camera to be ignoring the buffer (which allows you to shoot ~16 raw files via the OVF without pause) and rely purely on a fast memory card for decent performance.

this is also my most wanted firmware update.  things get better once you switch to a 95MBps SanDisk but no card will be as fast as the internal buffer, and the delay is definitely noticeable.
