So what is a Q-LOC axle? If I decide to install a fork with such an axle, do I need another front wheel or is is it possible that my current QR hub is compatible. What do a Q-LOC wheel look like and how much do they cost?

It appers that Q-LOC is the name SR SunTour gives to through-hole axes, such as this one. In this question, the advantages are explained. They are not compatible with traditional QR, because of the difference in the diameter.
