    What would be considered a medium speed and what brand would you recommend?

    think medium speed should be 40x... previously 20x is medium speed & 40x is high speed... now with introduction of 60 & 80x speeds, & WA, which A series dun utilise, no point getting a high end CF. unless you are sharing with your other systems...

    Me think with a A85, any normal speed CF card will do cos ur cam probably won't be able to make full use of HIGH Speed CF card... meaning, high speed and normal speed won't make too much of a difference...

    Thanx mate, is there anyway to check what the read`and write time of the A85 is as I cannot seem to find it in the manual

    Any card will do then. The camera's write speed is not fast.

    Yah loh, capacity will mean more than the speed since Consumer Digital Cams are not able to take advantage of the higher speed CF cards.
