I hope not since competition usually brings lower prices....
I don't see how there will be increased competition producing the XQD cards when everything is going to CFexpress. Lexar quit producing XQD cards for a reason....and that left mainly Sony as the main source of XQD cards.

However, hopefully the cost of CFexpress cards will eventually come down as more products use CFexpress cards and several manufacturers compete to sell them.

Not quite the same as every photographer (with a CFExpress-capable camera) moving to CFExpress cards over their in-hand XQD cards.

And Delkin and Nikon also sell XQD cards.
Correct, there is already 2 other suppliers if you don't want Sony cards.......that's another reason we are less likely to see more competitors enter the XQD market. And the future is CFexpress - not XQD. And if you already have XQD cards then you are less likely to buy more of them......

I have 5 XQD cards. I am not about to change, or buy more.

If the price comes down, I'm more likely to buy them....
