    oh or shooting RAW on one and jpeg on the other (RAW for archive, jpeg for speed in the field if you're a PJ and need to file asap).

    Why not, if you can do something that improves functionality (see above), then you may as well do it.

    The fastest you can get - SD cards are cheap compared to CF for some reason - I use a 32gb SD 45 mb/s for RAW and 8gb 60 mb/s CF for the large jpegs. - shows approx 800 images

    Google is your friend Grin
    SD cards have grown in capacity too (SDHC is SD High Capacity, while SDXC is SD Xtended Capacity). SDHC cards typically come in capacities between 4GB to 32GB. SDXC cards come in sizes of 32GB of higher, with a theoretical maximum of 2TB.
