Sandisk SxS cards released

It seems like Sandisk has released 8 and 16 Gb SxS cards now. I have not found them anywhere in stock but if you google for them you will find them in several on-line stores. The product ID is: SDX-VS-016G-E101 for the 16 Gb version and I've found it for approximately US$723.
Abelcine is selling the Sony 16 Gb card for US$875 so it seems to be a small step in the right direction. :-)

If only Sony would release that firmware upgrade so we can use ordinary cheap Expresscard memory soon...

Those Transcend cars have writing speeds of 8mb/sec. They won't get you far, nothing to do with firmware. HQ footage is 35mb/sec and SP 25mb/sec. So no, it is impossible to compare these cards at this moment.

8 mb or MB? if MB, my guess is that they will never be allowed to work in the EX, but who knows, would be nice for certain.

The writing speeds are 8MBs (MegaBYTE/s) or 64Mbs (MegaBIT/s) - hence theoretically nearly twice the data rate of the EX and 2 1/2 x that of HDV.

I found the Sony branded 8GB for 326 EURO and the 16GB for 586 EURO EX VAT. I think that are affordable prices. I am planning to buy an extra 16GB with my camera so I have 32GB in total (2x8GB, 1x16GB). This gives me 100 minutes of HQ recording or 160 minutes of SP recording. That's enough for all things I am planning to shoot and combined with a Macbook Pro and an external WD Passport 2.0 USB stick a robust SxS workflow.

The price listed at that sandisk link is more than I paid at B&H for the 16GB Sony SxS card.

If Henry Posner (or anyone else with knowledge of the inner workings of B+H) is around, I'd love to know when B+H will be carrying the SanDisk cards, and whether they'll be any cheaper than the Sony equivalents? The list price on the SanDisk cards IS cheaper than the list on the Sony cards, but (as the last poster noted), it's actually more expensive than B+H is selling the Sony 16 GB card for.
