I am not a professional photographer, but I definitely appreciate 2 cards. I wouldn't drag around 30lbs of camera gear unless I had a desire to capture the best image possible. The last thing I want is to visit a unique location (Africa) and not go home with the great images I captured simply because a card failed. I carry the weight of two camera bodies to have a backup even if I only put a handful of shots on the 2nd body. I think anyone who spends the money for a R5, 5dIV, etc. doesn't want to loose a shot simply because a card failed.You didn't need a failure to desire a system with a backup for redundancy to have peace of mind. I could use a single slot body, I don't NEED two slots but I have them and use them creatively, not for work/insurance/security. But I would not begrudge anyone who desires such a plan. It's silly to try and find holes in anyone's workflow. Do we all have to be the same? Please god no.
