Just picked up the Canon 5D Mark II and a pair of the Lexar 16GB UDMA CF Cards...I simply couldn't be happier. Picked up UDMA for the speed needed to handle the video through the 5D and the size because I didn't want to swap constantly with smaller cards, it has been worth every dime. I shoot a number of different L series lenses and the combination of the 5D, L glass and ridiculous speed of the Lexar Pro UDMA cards is just unmatched. Speed in the camera and the export to either my Mac or PC has been outstanding. Spend the money and then go do what your equipment was designed to do...these cards will not let you down.

I have a sandisk extreme 60mb/s and bought this one. It appears so far that the sandisk seems to be a little faster in write speed. But This card is new so I may just not have enough time with the card yet.

Comments about Lexar 16GB UDMA 300x CompactFlash Card:

I have had this CF on my Canon 7D, and on 4 occasions it has corrupted ALL the amazing, once-in-a-lifetime moments from the rainforests of Costa Rica to literally yesterday a family members wedding pics. even the flimsy Lexar card reader is garbage. I hoped re-formatting the card throught the camera and computer would solve these issues. all purchased through this site.. I am disguised and this is the absolute LAST TIME I buy ANYTHING this company makes. Buyers beware.. B&H(who i love) can replace your memory card, but they can't replace the moments....

                  I was looking for something to match up with the Canon 50D which I use for it's high speed capabilities. I picked up a couple of these cards last year and then two more just now and really... I can't say enough about them.These cards just ROCK and have no problems keeping up to the 40D or 50D slamming away at high speed.I have other CF cards in 2gb, 4gb and 32gb but the Lexars' are the ones I turn to when I NEED the shots to count while doing the events.

                                The card provides super fast reads and writes (as it should for its class). I have it in my Canon 40D which is a 10MP camera, so the ability to write a 3+MB file quickly is imporant so I don't miss my next shot. This card takes on this task with no problems. I'll be buying my next card from B&H, that's for sure!

                                    The card is a professional quality card that lives up to what it claims. It writes fast for when you have a burst of images and still need to continue shooting. This is my 4th lexar udma card and they have all performed superbly.
