XQD finally gets some love from Lexar

Lexar XQD 32GB memory card  Lexar XQD 64GB memory card

One year after the introduction of the Nikon D4, Lexar finally announced two new XQD memory cards with 32GB and 64GB capacity. The new cards offer a minimum guaranteed read transfer speed of 1100x (168 MB/s), write speed is lower. More details at PhotoRumors.

Many cameras were announced during Photokina and  yesterday for the CES show, but not a single new product supports the XQD standard. None of the major manufacturers came out to say that they will support XQD at some point in the future. The Nikon D4 still remains the only camera that uses XQD cards. The question remains: will the XQD standard survive?
