Have fun with your new camera when you get it....!!!! Also I have that SD card and have tried it by it self for a few moments and didn't seem to really slow the camera down compared to the 32Gb ScanDisk Extreme Pro CF (90mb/sec.). So should work well.

With the SD card, the camera shows it will hold 399 pics. Now I shoot Loss-less RAW and from what I've noticed and seen on here is that when shooting Loss-less, figure about twice as much as what is displayed on the top LCD. So figure the 32Gb cards should hold around 800 pics in Loss-less RAW setting.

32Gb cards I feel are good for longer outings and you'll need the space. I'm thinking about getting a couple of the 1000x Lexar 16Gb CF cards for smaller event coverage and use my 32Gb ScanDisk Ex Pro SD(95/Mbs) as the back up card for both....

Anyways have fun and enjoy,

Chris
