    I have a Sandisk 4gb Extreme III & Lexar Pro 8gb 133x

    I like both, and the Lexar comes out cheaper for sure.


    I use both with my 40D


    Lexar FTW, SanDisk is just followed by Fanboy cult. :greddy:

    I only shoot Sandisk, but some of the other brands with the UDMA do seem appealing.

    aka Lexar.

    I buy sandisk only cause after rebates, they were cheaper. I really dont have a need for more than 3 cards anyway.

    and also cause there is only room for one Kingston in OTAP.

    I mentioned in the other thread (the poll) that what really sealed the deal on my 40D decision was you, a Nikon fan, voting for it.

    UDMA is cool...but theres only a handful of cameras that use it. And the 40D aint one of them..

    true, but your card reader supports it, and it won't slow your camera down, so why not? I'm down for anything that can increase my import speeds...

    UDMA is still a little too much for me, and I haven't run into any issues where I said "I wish I had it". So for now, I'm good with my extreme III and extreme IVs

    I thought Girth status was buying excessive amounts of gear, and whoring it?
