    same price after rebate. i personally have the sandisk and love it. fast and reliable. never used the lexar before and i know that they have even a faster one out very shortly if not already. which one is faster/reliable/overall better?
    thanks.

    i'm biased to lexar just cuz the person i study under uses em and claims they are more reliable.

    Bought two Lexar 1gb 80x cards from ebay for $140 together... been hooked ever since. The Sandisk is only 66x, small difference, but the Lexar is faster nonetheless.

    Or extreme III, 133x or something crazy? Go with that if you don't mind the price..

    How? I've shot 5000 pics with my Lexar in the D70 and that's fine, but that's not a Canon.. I don't see how?
