Well, in my eyes they are very cheap. however, in the store i buy most of mine the sandisk ultra (cf) is as fast as the sandisk extreme (sd) but twice as expensive. (30MB/s)
So I'd take SD cards over CF cards because of that. it exists sd to cf adapters but the ones i've seen reviewed has been a huge bottleneck speedwise. not that i think it'll matter when the controller can only read at a fraction of the bottleneck-speed. So just have to remember to take the sd card out of the adapter if one want full speed when connecting to the pc to transfer whatever.
