When I see some of these shots I regret selling my 85L II...!

I had similar situation .
After buying 70-200mkii my 85Lmkii gathered dust for over a year. I sold the 85 and about a month later had a bad case of buyers remorse
But with 24-70mkii I was never tempted to sell the 35
The 35L just gets a look that the 24-70ii can't achieve.
I sold my 50/1.4 as the optics were in a lower class, but the 35L is my fave prime
I hate the slow AF on my 85L II....however, everytimes I shoot portrait, 85L II is my 1st choice. The bokeh and sharpness are amazing. I hope newer version will be faster and lighter.
Yep. Even the 350 pounds I paid for a 512mb (yes you read that right!) Lexar failed after a few months.
I bought two 1gb Lexar some time later and they failed.
Bought around 20+ Sandisk without issue
Local pro shop told me the only returns he gets are lexars
Other pros I know have had similar issues over the yrs and no longer buy Lexar
But people on here say they've no issue
I think once you experience a serious loss, and not just pics of the cat, you find it impossible to trust that manufacturer again.
True, but you also need to look at the cause of the issue if you can, because many have never had even one failure, so to have two like that must be pretty rare in the big scheme of things.
Plus if you were (God forbid) unlucky enough to have one of each major brand fail, you would be pretty stuck.
I do think it important to buy a card which is appropriate for the camera it will be used in. I believe (might be wrong) but the 5D Mark II has read/write speeds of around 50ish MB/s which really does make the Lexar 1000X overkill, and maybe something to do with that caused the problem.
Who knows, but I do feel for the OP. Good luck with SanDisk.
