When I first got the camera I checked the buffer and it was able to clear the buffer from the CFexpress card in under 10 seconds (I want to say it was 6 seconds with the Sony Tough 128GB). Now with both of my cards (Sony Tough 128GB and Lexar 128GB), it takes the same time as the UHS-II cards, which is roughly 20 seconds. I can see why Canon might have throttled it down, but I'm curious if others are seeing the same performance drop.

Personally, I'm not sure if it just my camera or if one of the recent firmware updates have altered it.

Still haven't seen a response that identifies the specific model of SD card from Lexar you are using, Is it their 2000x, 1667x, 1000x, etc? Please share that information

I'm using the V90 card, its a 2000x, but don't get caught up on the SD card. I only mentioned it for a reference of scale, kind of to say... "how does an SD card now match an CFexpress card's performance"? It doesn't contribute to the problem.
