    Has anyone tried faster CF Compact Flash cards - e.g. 40x, or WA (write
    accelerated) CF cards? I would appreciate your experience before shelling
    out.

    I have a Nikon 5700, which apparently is not tied into the WA scheme, but I
    imagine the 40x etc higher speed would help when writing (esp. "raw" of
    tif) to the card.

    Brands? Lexar, Sandisk, ... other?

    Only the Nikon DSLRs support WA.
