Are the SDXC and the CF cards written to simultaneously or sequentially when one is JPEG and the other NEF? If simultaneously, it would seem to write the JPEG to the slowest card used since it is a considerably smaller file, right? If sequentially, then it seems no speed advantage for JPEG on one and NEF on the other, right? Of course you may deem the split configuration of JPEG and NEF to be an in-camera safety back up.
