Almost 2 weeks ago, Nikon Rumors reported that B&H Photo had discontinued Lexar’s line of XQD cards. In light of Lexar’s recent acquisition by Chinese flash storage manufacturer Longsys, people assumed the worst—for once, they shouldn’t have.
Yesterday, Lexar responded directly to Nikon Rumors on Twitter, assuring the publication (and everyone else) that the it will continue producing XQD cards, which are currently used by some high-end Nikon DSLRs like the Nikon D5 and Nikon D850. Here’s the response in full:
Hi Nikon Rumors! We will continue producing XQD cards and will fulfill B&H’s inventory in a few weeks – hang tight! 🙂

Exactly what Lexar’s future looks like, we still can’t say. Longsys has been quiet except to say that “the innovative solutions and excellent support that they have experienced from Lexar will continue.” For now, that apparently extends to XQD cards.
