Does anyone know if the D700 is CF Type I or Type II compliant...or both? Some reviews say both but the Nikon brochure says Type I (only).

I just ordered two SanDisk CF Extreme III 4GB cards for my pre-ordered D700. Is the Sandisk CF Extreme III a Type I card?

Thanks for the help.

Should be both. If I remember correctly Type II is the latest and greatest. All other current Nikons using CF cards are both Type i & II compatable.

On the contrary, the D700 is Type I only. That is the thinner type whereas the older Microdrives are type II and thicker. The slot is not wide enough to take them.
