Yes, the wait is over. Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Zoom Lens is attached to my Canon EOS 5D Mark III finally. Had another big hole in the pocket again. Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Zoom Lens will be the general zoom lens on my full frame SLR camera 5D Mark III. Perfect for group, portrait and landscape photo. However, it is heavy for travel. Picture quality vs. mobility ~ which one do you prefer?

How is your hard disk drive performance? Is its reading and writing speed fast enough for your video editing applications or fast pace gaming? CrystalDiskMark is a free disk benchmark software. It can benchmark reading and writing speed of hard disk drive (HDD), solid-state drive (SSD), and flash memory like Secure Digital (SD, SDHC, SDXC) and Compact Flash (CF) cards.
Compact Flash (CF) Card X-Speed Rating is not exact same as SD, SDHC and SDXC Card Speed Class Rating which use minimum writing speed as guideline. CF card is based on value of X which translate into 1X = 150 KiloBytes per second. The X-Speed rating is up to writing speed (no minimum writing speed defined which mean it might be lower writing speed). Example, 10X is equivalent up to 1.5 MB/s writing speed.
