Sony is now the only manufacturer of XQD memory cards


Yesterday's news about Micron discontinuing the Lexar memory cards retail business has a bigger impact on Nikon shooters because in addition to Sony, Lexar was the only other manufacturer of XQD memory cards that are used in the latest Nikon D5 and D500 DSLR cameras. Hopefully, somebody will buy out the Lexar brand or jump in and start producing XQD cards. The thought of having Sony as the only option terrifies me.

Lexar XQD memory cards are still available for sale at B&H, Adorama and Amazon.
