I was going to replace all of my SanDisk Extreme Pro cards with these Pro cards from Lexar but my local camera dealer told me that because their is some behind the scenes conflict between Canon and Lexar that Canon does not support their cards and that they may not work in my cameras. Anyone have any information on this or know if there is any truth to it?
Canon 1DX, Canon 5D Mark III, EF 85mm F1.2L II USM, EF 100mm F2.8L IS USM Macro, EF 16-35mm F2.8L II USM, EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM, EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS II USM, 600EX-RT Speedlites, Profoto Studio Strobes, and a whole lot of boat load of light modifiers.

Great deal! Was waiting on the SanDisk Extreme Pros to go on sale to ~$120 for a 32GB card. Bought a two pack of these 1000X Lexar 32GBs for ~$238. Awesome price and performance is top notch according to Rob Galbraith. http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_wb_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-12452
5D Mark III, Rebel T1i, 17-40 f4L, 24-105 f4L IS, 70-200 f2.8L IS II, 85 f1.8, ST-E3-RT, 430EX II, 2 x 600EX-RT.

I've heard nothing but good things about the Lexar 1000x from people in general, and on this forum with 5d3/1DX.

Only if you consider going from 18-20 RAW at 6fps to 30-32 RAW at 6fps before the buffer stalls on the 5D3 to be a "problem".

According to B&H's page, the sale will be around all month, so you have a little bit of time to scrape together the money to get 'em. And if you have a 5DIII or 1D X it's well worth it to get them if you like to machine gun.  ;D

Any 7D users out there that can comment on if a 7D can gain any benefit from the 1000x vs 400x.  I've got a couple 400x and occasionally will max the buffer.  Always figured it was the camera, but with cards on sale, might as well ask if it might be the cards!  If a card would also benefit me, could have quite the boost once the new firmware is released!

Same deals at Adorama(some were actually a little cheaper at Adorama). Of course I just bought 2 of them 10 days ago!  But, alas, an e-mail to Adorama and the difference was given back to me as store credit.
5d Mark III, 24mm f/1.4L II, 24-105 f/4L IS, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 100 f/2.8L IS macro, 135 f/2L, 3x 600EX-RT, ST-E3-RT, EF 1.4x III

I bought two of the 400x a few days ago and I have had no issues with them in my 5d Mk III. Probably shot 300-400 pictures on them with downloads through a lexar USB 3.0 card reader.

I'm not the expert on this. (paging Dr. Neuro), but from what I understand, there are really two issues. How quickly the camera writes to the card and how quickly the card transfers the data to the computer. The speed that the camera writes to the card is limited by the write speed and buffer of the camera. My understanding is that most cards can accept the data faster than the camera writes from the buffer to the card, so there isn't any advantage to the super fast cards for the 7D. (400X should be more than adequate).

On the other hand, if you are using a card reader to transfer the data to your computer, it will go a lot faster if you have a fast card.

My real life experience tends to confirm this. I've never had a problem with the 400X cards (although I wouldn't go for the slower ones).

I make no claims to be a "techie" so I've probably screwed this up, but I think the bottom line is that the super fast cards don't offer much if any advantage because the camera becomes the main limiting factor.

Anyone who knows more about this, feel free to correct.

You may not consider yourself a "techie" but you've got everything right.  You get stuck at the same point I do.  the 400x should be more than adequate (ie the 7D can't write faster than that so it makes no difference to it whether you have a 400x or 1000x in the camera)  Hopefully Neuro does come along and has some hands on experience using either one and firing off some 15-20 or 30 shot bursts.

I'm using those very same in my 1D X 5DMKIII and 7D and works perfectly and are crazy fast. I can take 59 full size RAW photos on the 1DX at full speed before it start to buffer... And it empty the buffer in 8 seconds or less.
1D X - 5D MKIII - 7D - 24 f1.4L - 8-15 L - 50 1.2L - 85 1.2L - 15 2.8 - 16-35 2.8L - 24-105 4.0L - 70-200 2.8 LII - 24 TSE - 45 TSE - 90 TSE - MPE 65 - 180 f3.5L - 100 2.8L II - 580EX and a few Einsteins.

Oh, damn it.  >:(  I've already purchased a bunch of lexars cards for full price. This can't be fair. I've spent 900$. And now it's 40% cheaper. I need to monitor B&H more frequently.
