Sony discontinues 16GB SxS card

I find it strange that sony has discontinued the 16GB SxS card, but have not discontinued the 8GB cards (yet).

According to this link the 16GB card has been discontinued: SBP-16 | B&H Photo Video

I know they recently dropped the price on the 32GB SxS cards, but I still thought it was weird that they got rid of the 16GB cards.
