Current readers will be compatible with CFExpress. Right now if the reader supports two rows of contacts for XQD 2.0 it will support the same physical size for CFExpress.

What are those two rows? How to check if they are present on the reader?

The CFExpress will have the same contacts and from factor as the XQD. and NO you can not do a firmware upgrade without one.

It really blows my mind that someone buys a $2000 (or more) camera body and balks on buying a $25 item.

Agreed. just buy one.

From Nikon's firmware page: "Performing this update requires an XQD card reader."
