    came back spending about $350. Another 8GB Extreme III, 2 lens UV filters (1 for the 50mm, 1 for the 10-20mm), a card reader, and a pouch for all my memory cards.

    I can't refrain myself from spending. :rofl:

    I was pretty close on buying a 16GB memory card, but I couldn't justify the $230 tag right now... YET. :hs:

    similiar to the 5d...100-150 pics on a 2gb card does fine for me....I always fear I will fuck one up and lose all the pics

    last wedding, I took 600+ pics and I was one of three photogs. One before that, I took almost 1400. I can't risk running out of room and having to delete stuff on the fly. Plus, one can never have enough memory. :)

    I prefer to carry more cards than carry 1 big ass card and have the card fuck up on me. I can handle loosing 150 pictures. I can't handle loosing ALL the pictures.

    The economy would flourish, the deficit would cease, the balance of trade would turn in our favor and world peace would ensue if Girth and I went on a spending spree together!

    Yeah, I have to disagree also. I get around 150-180 Raw files on a 2GB card for my D300. :dunno:
