Default Olympus c-5060-What memory works best?

:?: I just bought a c-5060 and was wondering what kind of memory is best for this camera. Is XD, compact flash 1 or compact flash 2 the best choice. I'm sure CF 2 is better that CF1, but will the cost difference be worth it? Thanks

Compact Flash Type 1 12X rated should be the best memory for this camera. I do not believe that the 5060 can take advantage of CF speed above 12X.

Somebody's results (I'm afraid I can't recall who's) showed the Microdrive to actually be faster in the 5060 than CF type 2.
I use the XD and alternate between a 1GB Mcrodrive and 1GB Type II. They seem equally fast to me.
The XD is used for panoramics then I copy them to CF as needed while shooting.

I'm using the Oly xD, 256Mb and it seems awfully quick to me. They claim over 3 shots per second in burst mode and thats fine by me...

I see an advantage to doing dual card memory. CF is less expensive than XD and you can cross-transfer the recorder images.
