post #1891 of 29551
i have a question for you guys.
this 400d is the first camera i have owned that uses cf cards instead of SD, when i got it i ran to best buy and bought the only card they had in stock, a pny 2gb. i figured it would be fine becuase i know of PNY but the card is CRAP. it corrupted about 1/3 of my pictures from CES, including the ones i took with the EF II lens

what would you recommend for a good CF card that wont freaking corrupt my pictures?

(thats what the red ring means)

final decision: go with the 17-40. after trying both, the 17-40 is clearly the superior lens, but for some reason it is a little bit less expensive.
you wont be disappointed.

my $.02
That's actually the conclusion I came to after reading some reviews and comparing images. I should be getting it within the next few weeks.

Just get one from SanDisk.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...3&name=SanDisk

Any of these are good.

I prefer the Ultra cards due to the faster read/write speeds (as I only shoot in RAW).

The major well known brands, like SanDisk or Lexar, as others have said. I actually use a cheapy Transcend CF card, only $30, but it's 8 GB and 166x. The first one I had did the same to my images, but I RMA'd it and the current one is doing fine.

I'm torn between the same two lenses. The 17-40mm is an L lens with superior materials and build (of course), but I've seen some amazing shots with the 10-22mm and some reviews I read about it actually rate it's IQ as slightly better than the 17-40mm (I'll find and post such reviews later, typing from my phone atm). I'm leaning towards the 10-22mm myself because when I travel every summer, I always end up wishing that I had a wide angle for tight interior spaces. The wider 10mm and wider aperture is what's selling me, but it's hard to resist that red stripe! It's such a mark of status to be seen with that tell-tale red stripe on your lens! The only thing greater is to have one of the larger off-white L lenses.

What's the cycle/lag time on a low level dslr like the XTI? My point and shoot sx110is, depending on the setting, lags too much for my liking.

If you get the 5D markII, it's probably worth grabbing the grip as well.
