    BAM!! I'm waiting on both the pricing of the new cards to become clear as well as the firmware thing. I have to think it's either/or given what a PITA downgrading firmware is if someone wants/needs to use a QXD card post-upgrade. If it's a mess to do both then Nikon needs (pardon me, "should") at least allow a menu option to be inserted to allow the choosing of Card Type, but...

    I've had zero issues with my Sony 64GB card in the D500 and only once came even close to filling it before I could import my images, so I'm adopting a strong wait and see approach. I never upgrade firmware unless it resolves an issue I'm having, but I'm thinking of getting a second D500 (for landscape photography LOL) and as I have only one QXD card it's something I'm seriously curious about.

    From what I have read they are supposed to both work. But I cannot help but take a wait and see attitude.

    Re: XQD Card cancelled.

    I'm with Danno wait and see but from what my guys telling I think you may see only Sony Camera's using the XQD,I say that only because of their track record making for a tech that they developed for others company's to use hasn't been the greatest.

    I think the big thing will the price of the CFexpress card if it's going to cost 2 to 4 times the price of an XQD card or more then I think that's what will kill CFexpress if they fail.

    I don't want to derail this thread so just a quick question. So which lens would you use for landscape photography on a DX body? A DX lens or an FX lens? I really like my D7200 but haven't been able to decide which lens might work best since all of mine are FX glass. My 18-35mm is good on the wide end but not really long enough to be versatile. And my 24-120mm isn't quite wide enough. Any suggestions? Can't remember if you have the 16-80mm.

    Well I know the CFE architecture is backward compatible with XQD by design so Nikon would have to decide to cripple their cameras by not supporting both formats. As someone considering a D850 in the near future, I too am taking a wait and see attitude; primarily because I wouldn't put it past Nikon to somehow manage to shoot themselves in (both) feet over this.

    Re: XQD Card cancelled.

    I never thought about that because if a person has a Z6 or Z7 already and if Nikon only makes firmware updates that support the CFexpress cards that will suck for people who already have XQD cards,unless they make two firmware firmware updates one for the XQD and the other for the CFexpress.

    I guess I wasn't clear enough with the added "LOL". It would be a second wildlife camera. I was beating the dead horse of the D500 being a "downgrade" from the D7200 if you use it for landscapes. To put a fork in it, I can't see how you're "downgrading" with a camera that has a superior focus system, higher dynamic range, and the ability to auto-fine tune focus on lenses in the field - but hey, what do I know. Unnecessary upgrade? Almost certainly. But never, ever would it be moving in the wrong direction.

    That said, to answer your question, I did plenty of landscapes with my D7000 before going full frame and mainly used the Sigma 8-16mm and the 18-105mm kit. If I was serious and were to buy one today it would either be the Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 or 12-24mm f4 Art Series lenses.
