Frank,

Sandisk and Toshiba make two types of compact flash cards. Their standard and their high end. Lexar still has them beat on write speed I think but Lexars cost quite a bit more.

I took a very quick look at the companies' web sites and it is obvious that the high end stuff writes at about twice the speed of the standard stuff. They all seem to read at about the same speed.

I've got both types in their standard format and can't tell the dif. But then again they are being used in a Minolta S404 which has a a 32MB internal memory so flash card speed is not too relevant. You can shoot off at least half a dozen shots in standard JPG compression in about 3 seconds without flash of course.

Hope this helps.
