What brand(s) of the CF cards do you use? And how well do you think it has served you?

Seems clear enough to me that SanDisk and Lexar have a good standing in the market. But there are also many other brands. Not sure if they're a good buy in terms of value. I'm planning on a Lexar 40X. Got news that prices might fall next week.

How useful really is the read/write speed of a fast CF card, if it is used on a camera with limited speed? That, I wonder.

Only a fool would wait that long. Just need to wait for a slight plunge and that's good enough. So if its like within 2 weeks or so, a little patience helps.
