The SD slot is plenty fast enough for almost anything.

No, it really isn't.  Try shooting some RAW+JPEG sequences and you'll find out how bad the SD performance is.  Canon, sadly, did not include the faster protocols (forget what it is) for SD in the 5dIII.  Switching to Sandisk Extreme Pro UDMA-7 card fixed that right up.  Now, if you don't shoot RAW+JPEG bursts there's probably not a huge issue.  I like that flexibility so the CF card route was a good way to go.
