Watch out, those SDXC UHS-1 cards do not work in UHS-1 mode for Current Canon cameras, so it might sound like a good deal for a fast card, however, it will not be nearly that fast in your camera, so you are wasting money.

Am sure I could find my answer, but wondering if this'll come back quickly.  Looking to buy my first CF card for my upgrade to a 5DM3.  Suggestions for a primarily photo but sometimes video shooter?

I bought the fastest Sandisk CF I could find and it works well in my 5D3:

I get a full 6FPS for 21 frames and then the frame rate drops to 4FPS.

I also bought the fastest Sandisk 32GB UHS-1 card that Mt. Spokane above pointed out is a waste in the 5D3. True but the transfer to computer is way faster plus I have other devices kicking around that use faster media.

Thinking about getting the 128GB UDMA7 CF cards for my Mark III and the 7D.  Worth it?  Compatible?

My Sandisk Extreme 32GB (90MB/s) is UDMA6 and it works great. I have heard reports here of others using the 1000x Lexars with no issues.

Can't speak to the 7D - don't own one!

The 128GB SanDisk is a great deal at $609... But the 128GB Lexar 1000X is $726...

If you look at the Rob Galbraith report the Lexar 1000's are the speed demons with the Mark III...

http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_wb_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-12452

The Extreme Pro's make up the next fastest group; with the 128GB UDMA7 at the top...

If you want to maximize the burst rate, and sustain it, they appear to be the way to go...
5DIII, XSi, A2, 10s (x2), 20-35L, 24-70L II, 28-70L, 70-200L, 70-200L IS II, 85L II, 135L, 40 Pancake, 50 Macro, 100 Macro, 135 Soft-Focus, Crappy EF-S Kit Lens, 430EX II, Metz 45 CL-4, Metz 60 CT-4 (x2), White Lightnings, and lots of other junk...

Looks like some great SanDisk deals from B&H

SAECF16GB -$52.95
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=SAECF16GB&N=0&InitialSearch=yes 


I love B&H, but here they go again.  Just yesterday, the "regular" price on this one was $59.95.  Now they've listed it as $84.95, so that the actual $7 savings looks like $32.   :-\

The benefit from a super fast card comes when your buffer is full due to fast FPS shooting, or faster downloading to your computer, assuming you have a super fast card reader to match. 
 
Unless you are doing that, a inexpensive Sandisk 60 mb/sec CF card is overkill, but a good middle of the road choice.  In another year or even this next Christmas, prices for those super high speed cards will drop as a newer and faster one arrives on the market.

I have a Sandisk ImageMate All in one card reader is this fast enough to be compatible or use the full potential of a Sandisk 32gb 90mbps CF card?

Yes, it is USB 3.0 so that is the fastest card reader you can get at the moment.

I think I have the old one it is only USB 2.0. Would this still be fast enough or should I get the USB 3.0?

Only if you don't think it is fast enough. My photo editing machine doesn't even have a USB 2.0 port. USB 2.0 can theoretically move 480 Mbps and USB 3.0 - 5.0 Gbps. 90MB/s is 540Mbps so the choice is yours. I bought a Transcend USB 3.0 reader from B&H when I ordered my cards - it was only $15.

Awesome, that's what I needed to hear.  Can't imagine I'll be shooting at 6FPS too often to make the difference worth the money right now.
