Re: CF or SDHC

One thing that might have slipped all of the mega-pixel-peepers minds here is that there is a very good use for two slots: shoot in RAW + L or even RAW + M that way you can always have a copy of the RAW image but for ease/speed of workflow you can cycle quickly through the lower res Jpegs deciding which shots you want to work on instead of importing huge amounts of un-useable photo's (especially when shooting moving sports sequences)

I mention this as I have an older 2008 15" Macbook pro and though it is fine with the RAW files from my 1DMK2 it struggles to display the RAW filea from my 550D when I want to browse quickly through the folder using the eye button in finder.

But I can do the same with my 64gb SDHC. I can simply select the default view in my laptop, whether to prioritize viewing jpegs or RAW, or configure my software the same way, so I can be afforded a quick jpeg view of which shots are worth keeping/discarding. You don't need to have two slots to do what you just described. On the 6D I can even transfer all the files over wifi as soon as I am done shooting, making two card slots perfectly optional.
