Default Memory card recommendations for Canon 7D

As I read (increasingly) that there "may" be an upgrade to the Canon 7D line, perhaps in the next few months, I'm gathering information for upgrading from my current 40D. I wouldn't be adverse to taking advantage of some of the great sales going on now to pick up 32GB cards (or larger…I do a lot of nature and landscape photography…with bursts, particularly birds and butterflies). So, any suggestions for such cards? I've found a single recommendation for the 7D online but I think this forum would provide the most solid suggestions. Thanks.

You can't go wrong with a top-of-the-line card from either SanDisk or Lexar.

If you can find one on sale, so much the better.

But I suspect you won't.

You can use SD card up to 16GB. Check the spec.

Wrong.

The EOS 7D uses CompactFlash Cards, not Secure Digital Cards, and supports cards up to 128GB. It also supports newer UDMA transfer modes (so a faster card like a 600x Sandisk Extreme Pro UDMA 7 card will work well with it).
