Since I noticed you mentioning getting a KM 5D, you may want to avoid this card for use in a KM DSLR Model (or in KM Ax series cameras). This card appears to have a compatibility issue with some cameras, making it very slow.

It's one of the slowest cards you can find for some KM models (even much slower than the standard speed Kingston cards). It's the second slowest Compactflash card I've seen users report test results so far for in a KM 5D (although an SD card used in a CF adapter was slower).

It's also quite slow in the KM 7D, and can be *extremely* slow in a a KM Ax series model. Here are some tests for your 5D (you'll see it near the bottom):

It's also quite slow in the 7D:

They won't work in some of the Kodak DSLR models, at all; and even Canon had some compatiblity issues using these cards with the S1 IS (since corrected by a firmware upgrade for the camera).
