I'd act soon, then. There are still a few 4GB cards in the retail chain - B&H has some - but they are out of production. The flash memory industry is aggressively moving technology and manufacturing base to much denser memory arrays. We're soon going to lose even the 16GB cards as the new 15nm geometries make it into products - it is reasonable to expect that the minimum size in production in 2014 will be 32GB, at least for CF.

I think you mean happily? If not I'm not sure what you meant, and there might be something important there...
