SanDisk's Utlra II 256MB - 512MB SD cards now range from $65 - $90 USD, while the 1 and 2GB models range from $119 - $239 USD. The 2 - 4 GB Memory stick pro cards range from $479 - $959 for the top of the line card, while the 4GB Compact Flash card goes for $479, and the 8 GB CF card tops out at $959. The higher capacity cards are expected to be widely available in November.
