->> $230 for a 32mb XQD card?!?!?
Wow, I may have to shoot with just one card for a while till the prices come down.
Oh well, in a year or 3 I'm sure I'll be happy to have that slot in my camera.

For comparison, a "2-pack" of Lexar Professional 32mb 400x cards cost only $140 at Amazon.

->> I'm very impressed with the D4 and I am looking forward to getting one in February.

My biggest disappointment (and there aren't many) is the lack of support for CF Type II cards which means no way to use it with an Eye-Fi card. I wish the Eye-Fi people would make a CF Type I card, (or less likely, an XQD version) but it looks like that is one feature I'm going to have to live without.

Yes, I know there's the WT-5, but that's getting close to $1,000!
