Has anyone tried benchmarking their CF or SD memory cards?
Is a 9MB/s transfer rate (new CF card) from the camera to the computer over USB 2.0 in the norm? What numbers are others getting?

I alway pull the card and go direct..to slow through the camera
The camera really slows things down. There was almost no difference in speed between an old CF card and a new UDMA card in my a700.
Canon 7D - Canon 17-55 IS USM - Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS - Canon 50mm f/1.8 - Sigma 30mm f/1.4 - Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 - Canon 430EX II Speedlite
Kinda depends on the camera. DPReview tests camera transfer speeds. I'd use a card reader. It's easier and faster. I use a Lexas UDMA usb reader and can hit 30MB/s on my 30mb/s rated cards.
Canon 7D - 5D | 550EX - 430EX II - (2) PW FlexTT5 | 24-105 f4L | 70-200 f2.8L IS | 100 f2.8L IS | 50 f1.8 II
I tried a friends Kingston 266x card on my a700 for a day and it was noticeably faster than my 133x cards were.
