...Since 2003 I have yet to break a CF or bend a pin. You have to try hard to ruin one and I have dropped and washed & dried several with no ill effect.
I hope you mean you have dropped, washed, and dried a CF card, and not a CF-equipped camera!
Yes, SD cards have their own set of problems, but I was refering only to the use of long, thin pins versus other contact methods.
I haven't bent any pins, either, but I've repaired three cameras since 2005 for others who have. (Since I'm a watchmaker, I often get calls from people who use me as a first responder for anything macroscopic in scale that gets messed up.)
