I do not have an answer to your question, but I have noticed that CF card support seems to be waining. When I bought my current Macbook Pro a year ago, I wanted to get a CF reader, I could not find a local store with a CF card reader. I finally had to go to Amazon.

Perhaps even the pro cameras are going to drop the CF card in the near future, who knows.

I have the Lexar Express Card UDMA CF reader, it works fine on my Lenovo W530.

It is still available from some sellers on ebay:

CF support is alive and well just fine.  ExpressCard support has been dwindling for years since Apple dropped it in 2009.  With no need for it in any mainstream laptops, manufacturers have only put it in the largest models with room.  I haven't used one in many years and that was with a very outdated system.
