    When I went from a Nikon D700 to D810 I bought a much faster and larger SDXC than my CF cards. I’m still not convinced they are built very tough for heavy use / abuse compared to the heavier duty metal shells of CF, but the speed was certainly appreciated–especially when offloading with a good card reader. Those were UHS-I cards at the time. More recently I’ve found myself doing it all over again with my D850, favoring XQD over SDXC for faster speed, although UHS-II is a worthier competitor. But I appreciate the heavier duty design and quality of XQD with the metal shell over the plastic SD cards. Nikon says they are adding CFExpress support to the D850, Z7, and Z6 with firmware updates soon, I doubt it will actually speed up the camera writes, but the reads would sure be fun with ProGrade Digital’s new card reader! 😀

    I hope ProGrade Digital builds a 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 hub with a USB-C connector for their various modules. It would be a really nice upgrade to my aging Lexar hub, which is 5Gbps USB 3.0 and there are no modules for CFExpress for it. If you have an inside contact, can you pass that suggestion along?
