In my D3s I always use both card slots, one for the main and one for backup.

Now with the D4 I have to get new XQD cards but I already have CF cards.
From what I can see the XQD is in slot Number one and I want to have that as the main card so that it will go faster to download to my computer.
I have two 32GB Lexar CF Pro cards and two 16GB Lexar Pro CF cards
I want to use those CF cards as back ups

I want to buy a 64Gb XQD card to be used with the two 32GB CF cards and one 32GB XQD card to be used with the two 16GB CF cards.

My question is this:

If I had the 64GB XQD card in slot number one and then a 32GB CF card in slot number two for backup, will the camera tell me that slot number two is full once I took 32GB of photos or will it continue to take pictures and only put them on the 64GB card ?
