Hello everyone,

First post here. I have been photographing on my second hand, very beat up, 7D for years and have decided to take the plunge and buy a R6. I'm not very technology minded and having been using the equipment for so long I'm a bit confused about all the different options for cards. Google is telling me I should buy 2 "SanDisk 128GB Extreme Pro 300MB/s UHS-II SDXC Card", would you all agree with this?

An alternative would be something like the Sony Tough CFExpress 128GB. It will give faster write speeds should you want to take advantage of the R6's burst speeds.

The R6 uses two SD UHS-II slots and no CFex slots.
