Yes, all the time but I have a habit of leaving CF cards at home.

I don't buy Nikon's rep response either. Especially that one of the responders here has SD card faster than CF card and it still happens.

It is definitely not the grip.

No, it does not for me. I have and tried 133x and 600x. The way I shoot does not make any difference. The only burst I have ever used was 2fps once in a blue moon.
