My D800 is on order - and I'll add it to my 2 Nikon D300 cameras.

Unlike the D300, the D800 will take both types of storage media - CF and SD:

CompactFlash© (CF) (Type I, compliant with UDMA)
SD
SDHC
SDXC

And, so, my question is: What is the difference in using CF versus SD cards for storage?

The SD prices are much lower. The 36 MP sensor suggests that my collection of 8GB CF cards may be inadequate. A 32GB CF card is much more expensive than a 32GB SD card.

What are the advantages of either type of card?
