    I have been using a 1 gb Lexar Pro compact flash memory card in my Nikon
    d70s and am eyeing a new, larger 2 gb Sandisk Ultra II as a replacement.
    The Lexar card utilizes WA technology and claims "80x"transfer speeds. The
    packaging on the Sandisk card seems to indicate up to only 60x or 66x
    transfer rates. Can I compare these to each other, and if so, does that
    make the Lexar the faster of the two?

    Check the following link:

    It shows the read and write speeds of the D70 with a variety of CF cards.

    Along with my new Canon SD1000 for father's day,
    I received a Sandisk 2GB SD card.

    Don't have any other SD cards, so these are new to us.

    SanDisk doesn't list the "speed" of the standard SDSDB-2048-A10 card.
    In reading some other threads, it seems like the write speed
    might be at a fixed rate set by the camera, vs the card's capability.

    SO - what's the deal with these Ultra or Extreme SD cards ??
    Also - the SanDisk cards seem twice the cost of others from Kingston, etc
