You can't use an SD/CF adapter in a 5D3 because the CF slot is only type 1.

The SD slot is plenty fast enough for almost anything.

Pretty sure that's not true. I've heard of people successfully using adapters of that ilk but with very occasional issues of corrupted files and of reduced write speeds.

The safest and fastest option is always to use a decent CF card.
