I use a 20D mainly for sports where the write speed is important.
I currently use 2x512 x40 CF cards and i need to get more memory. I'm thinking of getting something around 2 meg.

Should i stay with CF or switch to Microdrive?

Oops. I see I misread the price by £100. You win.

Sandisk will roll out the new Extreme III and revamped Ultra II CF cards starting next week. There is a good article about them here:

Of course, I found out about this a day after I ordered a new 1gb Ultra II.
