Ellis Vener has posted the following link to another forum: Delkin Launches Premium XQD Cards It is a press release to be go to the public on August 21. Therefore we are a few days early. Last year, Delkin had announced that they would introduce CFexpress (CFX) cards, probably later in 2018. CFexpress cards have the same form factor as XQD cards and use the same underlying PCI technology, but CFX cards will use multiple PCI lands and will be faster. It is a bit unexpected (at least to me) that Delkin would suddenly get into the XQD market when they are almost ready to introduce its successor. However, since Lexar is still unable to deliver XQD cards after its ownership change, maybe Delkin is trying to fill the void. It is expected that the up-coming Nikon mirrorless camera will have at least one XQD slot. Therefore, there is clearly demand for XQD cards in addition to demands from D4, D4s, D5, D500, and D850 owners as well as certain Sony camcorder owners. Assuming that the Nikon mirrorless camera does take XQD, it is very good news that there is another supplier besides Sony. Ever since Lexar left that part of the market, there has been some XQD shortage on and off, and prices have gone up, although prices for memory cards have gone up a bit overall anyway.
