So now D4's pre-order is full/available here/there while still no one is able to pre-order online for an 1D X in the US. What's going on Canon?!
Some insiders told me it's because Canon hasn't confirmed the price at all. So major retailers hesitate to take pre-order.
My other guess is that they still couldn't get the FCC authorization yet for the gigabit ethernet thing. The following statement has been on 1D X product page on Canon USA since day 1. Same thing is written in Japanese on Canon Japan too.
"...The EOS-1D X has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. These devices are not and may not be offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained..."
