Well now, that depends on the performance and capacity you want. Go for the best you can afford. Look at Advanced Photographer Magazine issue 31 - June 2013 in the shops now. They have a comparison test - last month covered CF and this month Sd.

thanks alan
will have a look at the mag
main thing is the write speed of the card.

I have Sandisk Extreme 3's in mine. I tend you use a few 8GB compacts and have a 16GB SD as a backup

I can vouch for Sandisk Extreme Pro, I have an 8gb 2 16gb and 1 32gb. The write speed is 95 mb/s and is really noticeable compared to Sandisk Extreme, and Lexar professional. Also they're heat and cold resistant, shock proof and water proof, plus resistant to airport search wands.

You might want to check out This first and perhaps spend your brass on a fast CF card and perhaps use the SD slot for jpeg backup/video
