    I have a Sandisk Ultra II CF card. I wonder if changing into the more
    expensive Extreme III or even Extreme IV card will speed the storing
    process into the camera just after shooting? The camera is well known
    for being very sluggish, and I am curious if paying extra more money
    will help.
    I assume that the Extreme III or IV are newer model, but is the camera
    the one in control during storing data?
    Thanks for info.

    It's possible, but not certain. I have no specs on your camera, but it
    can't save data any faster than it can save data. If it's already
    performing at maximum write speed, then no card will speed it up.

    Just a quick point of interest: I tried a faster III card in my old
    Maxxum 7D, and it was slower then the II card.

    If possible, it would be better to try before you buy, or at least be
    prepared to take it back to the store.
