    Just got a SanDisk Ultra II 512Mb Cf card for my D70 to go with my ageing 1G
    IBM microdrive - and I have to say, it's MUCH faster. Both in writing to
    disk for continuous shooting as well as reading for display
    etc....Surprisingly (for me), the speed improvement is most noticeable with
    RAW files.

    That's all - I'm a happy camper and would recommend the Ultra II cards to
    anyone looking for FAST storage...

    ...probably does RAW -> JPEG conversion on the fly while
    storing, so that would slow it down. RAW is pretty much straight
    It'll get faster, bigger, more.

    Or given the fact the NEFF file is bigger it takes longer to write the neff
    so decreases in write time are noticeable to the user? The D-70 is able to
    take advantage of these faster cards, unlike my CP-5700. On the 5700 write
    times of raw take ~20 sec no matter if I use an old Lexar 8x 128MB card of
    my newer Lexar 40XWA 1GB card.

    You can't go by Lexar. They use a hokey acceleration method
    that only works with certain cameras. Get SanDisk Ultra II
    and you'll see a major difference.
