Absolutely Amazing! Specially since read speed on UHS II maxes out at 300 mb/sec and write speeds are always lower. Hypothetical max transfer speed on UHS II is 312 mb/sec. Your Canon R must have been sprinkled with some magic Pixy Dust!
Wow, Id love to know what UHS-II card you have as my Sandisk is registered with a max 260mb/sec used in an EOS R?

Just a thought. If the write speed on a CFE card is so much higher why not duplicate from the CFE->SD card AFTER the shot burst vs. dual write? This would ensure data redundancy across two cards and at the same time not cripple the FPS. If a user chooses to only have an SD as primary then this function would be disabled.

Just had a look at CFE prices and holy sh!t, so a 256gb costs half of a brand new R, pretty shocking....
Kinda catches you in the boo boo, don't it? ;) Glad that camera is just a twinkle in my eye right now. I would never need more than 32gb, maybe 64gb. The video, sports and wildlife guys are going to feel a sting. 128gb are going for $199 at Adorama. 1TB for $899 I think.

People are not happy with the 2 heterogeneous cards slots, sadly.
How about 3? Then the fight were: Should it be 2 CFE and 1 SD or 2 SD and 1 CFE --> also no good.
Thats why we need 4 card slots: 2 CFE and 2 SD, or(?), wait a second ....
Personally, I was hoping for a 3GB/s NVMe SSD magazine with a 30 round capacity.

Yeah, I really want to know what those R5 file sizes are going to be like. I'm shooting a lot of JPG right now with my RP (partly because there are no camera-matching RAW profiles in Lightroom), so this is rarely an issue, but I think I may need to upgrade to 64 or 128 GB cards when I have a camera with over 40 MP.

I guess the question is which camera is giving the complainers two CFE cards they so desperately need? The 1DX3 and?

If the camera has a high speed usb-c port they could also allow an external SSD as a recording option. BlackMagic Design‘s newer Pocket Cinema cameras have this option so it’s not out of the question if they are on Canon’s radar.

If the R5 is rumored to be 45 MP at 20fps, is anyone concerned this will lead to a buffer issue for an SD card? That’s more lifting than the 1DX3.

I was talking about the MAX Speed of UHSII cards, not necessarily in the R. As far as max read speed of 300 mb/sec look at https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/prod...ces_ddsdg2000128_128gb_sdxc_2000x_memory.html
yup, the max speed of the Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB read speed is up to 300mb/s and write speed of 260mb/s which is the important one as that is what determines how fast the buffer fills up. Thats why I was asking what card you have as 400mb/s is incredibly fast for a UHSII card

Hope you are being sarcastic. If not, in the USA 256gb CFE is starting at $280 (Prograde) and $400 for a 256gb Sandisk extreme pro. In comparison a 256GB SD UHS--II V90 rated card is costing $330 and up. of course if you were to buy a V60 or less rated card the price is less than half of the above said prices.
Above Prices I found today at bandh.com

Hasn't LR had RP RAW profiles since 12/2019?
