re: CFExpress Type B
The use of USB-C limits download speed to 1GB/sec (pretty darn fast!), but with Thunderbolt 3, CFExpress cards should be usable at their full rated speed of up to 1.7GB/sec. This might not matter for most users, but for video shooters, it may play into a more efficient turnaround for download/backup.
