    My SD card slots have always been slower than my CF slots. My SD cards have always been slower. If I expect to be shooting large bursts, I use the CF slot. If I don’t, I use e SD slot. Now, I don’t shoot video much, so it may be more of an issue there, but not a problem for still images.

      That’s not the issue. The issue is that canon isn’t supporting fast SD cards due to lousy firmware.

    If you shoot social events that can’t be redone (e.g. a wedding) – which I do – you want to have fast burst capability AND security. So I use both cards simultaneously. It’s a medium pain in the back that canon did not do UHS for the mark III.

    CANON WE HOPE YOU IMPROVE THIS VIA A FIRMWARE UPDATE IN THE NEAR FUTURE!

    Pretty shameful for what they are extorting for this camera. This is not a consumer level camera.

    Right when I am about to settle for a 5d mark III, all sort of new findings( after the light leak issue)are coming to light against the camera’s merit and you are forced to abandon the idea.
    I don’t know what to do next…

    How serious is this shortfall?
