    I like Sandisk Extreme III as well. But I haven't used other top quality cards to compare. I have a couple Ultra II cards, which are OK but not as fast. I've also got a few 'consumer grade' cards and they work just fine but are noticeably slower for somethings.

    Cards really shouldn't be something that you need to think too much about. One brand is probably as good an another.

    I have a Kingston 133X 4GIG, Sandisk III 8GIG, and Transcend 16GB.

    The Sandisk looks sexier, but the Transcend pretty much stays in my camera from now on out. Only time I have switched is when I have wanted a new fresh "set".
