When Micron Technology announced they were discontinuing Lexar, one of the customers’ concerns was the availability of XQD memory cards. A recent post on Nikon Rumors caused even more stir, as they noticed all Lexar XQD cards were discontinued at B&H. However, a response from Lexar says there’s nothing to worry about after all – they will continue producing XQD cards after all and fulfill B&H’s inventory again.
When Nikon Rumors tweeted the article, the response from Lexar came:

As I mentioned, a couple of months ago, Micron Electronics announced the discontinuation of Lexar. But, they’ve sold the Lexar brand to Chinese flash storage company, Longsys, so the brand continues to exist. As one of the commenters noticed on Nikon Rumors, it could be that the (old) news about Lexar being discontinued caused a run on XQD cards. Another one notes it could be the Nikon D850.
Whatever the reason may be, when you visit B&H’s page today, you’ll see that the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB cards are still discontinued. But judging from Lexar’s response, this is only temporary and the stock will be refilled in a few weeks. So, I guess all you have to do now is wait.
