comment Is there any reason someone wouldn't use a longer key?
This all depends on the curves and implementations, but yes, ECDSA is faster than RSA for the same strength (on my 3.1 GHz Xeon server, 224-bit ECDSA is 16 times faster than 2048-bit RSA). That's for private key operations (signature generation); for public key operations (signature verification), it goes the other way (RSA being about 4 times faster than ECDSA on my server).
