Inexpensive CF Memory Cards

Anybody know where to get some inexpensive CF cards. Like less than a $1 a MB but still equally fast?

I have a handful of 2G cards I can send you once I find them (everything is still pretty much in boxes form the move yet)

I really appreciate that, but, I'm specifically looking for 32Gig cards. I have a couple of 16s but I want the two cards in my camera to match and it takes an SD and a CF.

I have thought seriously about one of those CF-SD adapters. I just think it might hurt speed a bit too much.

I run a CF- SD adapter in my D300 and it works great but it won't fit in the D800.

Amazon.com : Transcend 32 GB Compact Flash Card 400X (Blue) : Electronics

I ran these in my 7D when I had it. Could handle the 8 FPS burst rate on RAW without a problem, which is pretty impressive for the money. A good friend of mine runs the Transcend SD cards in his rebel t2i without issues. It's a great card for video and photo. The brand seems pretty solid. I'd highly recommend them.

I looked at those and I'm guessing that price range is what I'm stuck with. I was just hoping that the prices had come down a little. I know a year and a half ago I could get 32GB SD cards for $20ish on special. Was just hoping CF cards had come down in that time.

I've been running a 32GB SD and a 16GB CF and using the CF as overflow, which I have never actually used, I always swap cards. Now I'm thinking of using my CF for RAW and SD for JPG and getting an SD reader for my iPad. That way I can get an on site preview of images without having to lug a laptop around but still have the RAWS for actual editing and archiving purposes.

I picked up on boxing day a bunch of 32 GB Lexar SD cards for like 14 bucks each? They work fine, a bit slow though.
