As a poster above said, what if the IS or AF motor does go out on the Mark I?  How much pain in the butt would it be to get it fixed by Canon?  Either the AF or IS?  I've never had that happen in a lens, so I was just curious.
Cant answer that question ... but want to say thats a good reason to buy the non-IS version if you can find one. Ideally, the newest version of the 400 f/2.8 is best, ... if you can afford it. But when buying only what one can afford and it being older, I think it's best to eliminate the 3-$4000 total loss of a failed IS motor.

Good question ... but you can safely bet the best work from a 1DX wont be seen until it gets in the hands of an American!
pffff, come on. like if no one else can make good photo's! america is not sacred. why should another part of the world wait longer to get the camera?

Haha! Come on the guy is obviously joking. Tongue in cheek humour it is called.

What I do not understand is why the OP decided to expand from the 1D X has arrived in India, to questioning how Canon is treating the US. Almost as if he wants to cause trouble. Would have been much better to just have a thread about India. No need for the "America" comment.

The 1D X has arrived in India great, just as it has in numerous other countries.
yeah, i guess you're right :P i need another coffee!
Thank you, Expatinasia.
Maybe you have had too much coffee already, xROELOFx?  ???

Either people on this forum are lying (why, I dont know) or the chat reps are lying about not being able to give out shipping info.
The rep @ *** whom I chatted with had no way of knowing if I would be in the first shipment. I ordered in early march.

My begging conversation:

Welcome to Live Chat at the ------- Customer Service Department. Please wait while we connect you to an agent who will be able to assist you...
You have been connected to -------.
Mark : Hi Can you tell me anything about my Canon 1DX order?
-------: Hello Mark. My name is -----, and I will be glad to assist you. Please give me a few moments to begin working on your inquiry.
-------: We are expecting a shipment by the end of this week, but orders are being filled in the order they are received
Mark: ok ... any chance I fall into that shipments count?
-------: I am sorry but we would not have that information.
Mark: ok ... one more question ... how long before spare 1DX batteries are available?
-------: Let me check.
-------: Are you referring to CALPE4N
Mark: ..... the battery for the 1DX (LP-E4)
-------: We do not have an ETA for this item
Thank you for contacting the ------ Customer Service Department.

From a B&H online chat support 'conversation' about an hour ago (names removed):

Me: Hi, any update on EOS 1D X deliveries?

B&H rep:  ...I will be glad to assist you. Please give me a few moments to begin working on your inquiry.

Me:  Ok, thank you.

B&H rep:  There is a shipment on the way to B&H, it will arrive after the 4th of July holiday

Me:  Excellent news! Can you give me any idea if my place in the pre-order queue is high enough that it's likely I'll get one from this shipment?

B&H rep:  Sure will

Me: ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

When did you pre-order?

I cant understand why so many 5DMK3 owners are saying  ... "I'm glad", "It does", "It doesn't", "Cant do", "Can do", blah, blah, blah ... ON ALL OF THE 1DX THREADS!  ??? ::)

WE GET IT! ... you payed less for less of a camera!

Be happy & go use it.

Quit spending time counting your $$$ in front of those who spent more for what they wanted!!!!!!

Jeeeeez us!  ::)

If you are that paranoid, for whatever reason, dont do it.
... otherwise, just keep in mind you bought it to use it everywhere ... not just some places.

That crazy stunt man who tried to jump the Snake River Canyon said; "If $$$ was meant to be held on to, it would have a handle on it".
Think about it. ???

When changing a lens, always keep the front of the camera body facing down.

When Nikon has already come out with a software update for both the D4 & D800, I think Canon should discount the "witheld" 1DX.

Especially when Nikon owners have enough time to notify the manufacturers of faults & have that manufacturer respond with a solution. .... all the while Canon customers are still left in the dark as to their loyalty of 1DX pre-orders! >:(

I live in Texas and just heard a Cajun (somebody from Louisiana) talking about the 1DX pre-order he made with Canon .... he said; "First you tell me April, then you tell me May, then you tell me June .... now I know ju lie!".

This is where the rumor of "July" started.  :o

44
Personally, if I pay 1,000's of dollars for a camera with a large body, I dont want to have to tighten half of it up every now & then.

Send that back breaker (1DX) to me asap, Canon!  ;D

Seeing as new DSLR prices are so high, particularly the new accessories such as the BG-11 grip for the 5D3, why don't canon offer both 'tall' body (integrated grip) and 'regular' body options on all xD cameras? Obviously they could charge a premium, say +$500 for a tall 5D3, over a regular short body. After all, the interior tech is the same, just more magnesium alloy + weather seals. It would also kill off 3rd party 'knock-off' grip vendors.
Thats a great idea .... you're just going to have to wait 4 yrs for Canon to say you can pre-order it ... & another year to actually get it. ::)
