I've been a big fan of the Lexar Professional Compact Flash memory cards in the past, and have gradually stepped up from the 400x to the 800x and now to the 1066x speed. I do have to say that a higher-speed card really does matter. On my Canon 5D Mark III, a faster card really matters. The camera is able to get the files out of the memory buffer and onto the card extremely quickly. For shooting fast action sequences, this really makes a huge difference. The 1066x speed is a lot faster than even the 800x card. Slower cards are fine if you're shooting products in the studio and have to wait for strobes to recycle.
I have used Lexar CF cards for years. This card is fast and allows me to maximize the burst rate of my Canon 7Dii when I shoot birds in flight. I trust the dependability of the card and the ability to use and reuse without fear of data loss.
I use this card in a Nikon D800. The card preforms as better than expected. Images transfer at a very good speed using the Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot reader. If you shoot in DNG (raw) & J-peg, You might want to carry a couple of these cards as DNG (raw) uses a lot of mb's. I love these cards because they are easier to handle with my large fingers.
As cameras have larger files and faster speed I've updated memory cards. I have always used Lexar and have been happy with them.
I gifted this to my brother (Semi-Professional) and he likes it, no complains so far.
I've bought several of these Lexar 1066x cards from Adorama over the past year. While Sandisk is also on the approved media list, if you compare the read and write speeds of both cards, Lexar has the better performance. I don't know if this will matter for my use, but I appreciate the peace of mind. If you compare EQUAL specs for Lexar and Sandisk, the Lexar is a better value. You must be in Sandisk "black" cards at a much higher price.
While I am not a pro, I do have gear that a pro would love to have and use. This card works as advertised. Fast, with good capacity for a weekend shooter like me. My camera produces huge raw files with its 36.3 megapixel sensor and I needed something a little larger than I usually use and after investigating several cards, this was my choice. I am not unhappy. The price is high, but you get a lot for the money.
This card in my D800 set to raw gives me 800 shots, plenty for a day or two on vacation. I've used Lexar for many years and had very few problems. The couple of times there were a problem Lexar was able to retrieve my images and furnished me with a new card-thats a great company in my humble option!
No problems at all with the write speed of these cards no matter what camera you use or what you are shooting. Absolutely dependable too.
I often take burst photos of birds in flight so having a fast, high capacity memory card is important. I use 3 DSLR bodies with different lenses attached so I bought 3 of these cards and have found them to be fast and reliable. While less important to me I can also definitely tell that my USB 3 card reader import speed is much faster when copying files to my notebook.
