According to my experience, the speed of cards in use would not affect storing time very much, plus, the continuous shooting rate and numbers will be the same, i.e. 8 jpegs and 5 RAW for DS (and 5 jpegs and 3 RAWs for DL).

MHO is with any *ist D series camera, opt for card size instead of speed to get the best price-performance ratio. Actually, the slowest Sandisk/Panasonic or even the slower Toshiba card is more than enough for our DSLRs.

my only evperience is i have a slow 1gig card and i just bought a 60x. i don't think it stores an image any faster but my d/l the the machine is about 25% faster. what i can't understand is that it's faster to ''copy to disk''than ''move to disk''.

The reason that "copy" is faster than "move" is that "move" involves two consecutive operations. The first is "copy", followed by "erase' (or "delete"). The second operation is what lengthens the time.
