I'm not going to get technical with this review, but I just upgraded form a 7d & 50d to a 7d Mark II and 5d Mark III and my old CF cards were clearly not keeping up with the performance of the new cameras and I wanted something faster. I shoot a lot of weddings and I used to use a bunch of smaller cards in case something goes wrong with one of them. With the new cameras having dual card slots I bought a 2 pack of the 64gb CF & SD cards as well as 2 packs of the 32gb CF & SD cards (writing to both cards to have an instant back-up). They are all performing up to my expectations and clearly faster than my older cards.

I've only had these for a couple of weeks, but have shot a couple of weddings and other events with them and they are working well.

I've consistently purchased Lexar over other brands because of the reliability. Normally, I've shot with nothing more than 16GB CF cards, but lately I've found it more practical to shoot with 32GB cards so I don't have to switch as often. With the great price on these, I figured I'd get the fastest card available. While shooting a wedding a few weeks ago I had two of these in my Canon 1Dx (one for RAW and one for JPG). At one point my camera said it was still writing to the card. Figured it was just normal if it was converting for JPG. Unfortunately, it locked up my camera, and I ended up losing 15 or so images that didn't write properly to either card. I used another one of these cards in my Canon 5D III to see if it was the body or the card. While transferring images from my card into Lightroom, I got an error warning that 66 of them could not be read. I'm hoping it's just a glitch, because Lexar cards have been fantastic for me. B&H, being true to their form with spectacular customer service, is going to replace these for me at no additional cost.

    Comments about Lexar 32GB Professional 1066x CompactFlash Memory Card (UDMA 7, 2-Pack):

    For my D800 Nikon (the Big Boy camera) and the impending life plan (wife about to retire, trip to Europe, RV roaming the USA) tons of photos WILL be taken and larger storage is totally necessary. Initial testing of these cards has been error free with excellent quality NEFs coming off them into my ever ready newly upgraded 17" MacBook Pro. And with more time to pursue more commercial photo work with my creative director on hand full time now, these cards will keep me ready to rock.

        Reliable on Canon 5DIII

        By David

        from Pennsylvania

        Comments about Lexar 32GB Professional 1066x CompactFlash Memory Card (UDMA 7, 2-Pack):

        I've never been loyal to one brand in particular but having shot Kingston, Sandisk and Lexar, I've had issues with all of them except these Lexar CF cards.

        I shoot a lot of vlogs on the Canon 5DMarkIII as well as shoots for editorial clients. They've done very well for me.

        Buying two more to bring total up to 5.

              Perfect performance every time. Comes with a link for software to recover most images and video. But Lexar is very stable and I've never used it. Great product.

                              Comments about Lexar 32GB Professional 1066x CompactFlash Memory Card (UDMA 7, 2-Pack):

                              Professional Photographer of 14 years. I use Lexar SD and CF cards daily. I update all of my cards to the near fastest or fastest cards available once per year. Lexar cards are always my first choice. Fast and rock solid. I can trust these guys even with the most valuable photos and moments.

                                I have never had an issue with Lexar Professional cards. They are fast and reliable in a\camera and in data transfer. I use a 32 Gig card in each camera capturing a full day's shoot in RAW.

                                  Comments about Lexar 32GB Professional 1066x CompactFlash Memory Card (UDMA 7, 2-Pack):

                                  Wow!! When I got these cards I had to test them right away. I shoot concerts and at times I have I have to take a lot of photos to make sure that I have the one that I want. When I got these cards these cards I tested them with my D3S&D3X. The D3S did 36 frames in 9 seconds and my D3X did 24 frames in 16 seconds. After I stop shooting I looked at the monitor on my camera and the last picture was written to the memory card.
