I am honestly not surprised, all major camera releases in the last year have delayed due to floods, earthquakes, nuke plants, Godzilla, etc.

So most probably Canon knew that Nikon D4 is coming so they rush wit 1D X press release.

<p><strong>April 2012 Release?<br />

</strong>From Calumet in the UK, comes word that the Canon EOS-1D X may not be shipping until April. I had heard that previously, and it’s not overly shocking.</p>
<p>No word on why the camera may be delayed.</p>
<p><em><a href="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/827036-REG/Canon_5253B002_EOS_1D_X_EOS_Digital.html/BI/2466/KBID/3296">Canon EOS-1D X at B&H</a></em></p>
<p><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">c</span>r </strong></p>


I've heard that before. One rep at Canon event told that this camera will be delayed to April 2012 - this event took place (as I remember) in early december or something like this (can't remeber the exact day, I can find that info in my email), so this really doesn't surprise me at all.

This could mean that it's delayed for "normal" customers and that there are too many journalists that are getting one...

Are those rumors about 1DX battery problems real?

I know it's wishful thinking and speculation, but let's hope the delay is so the 1DX can support the new XQD memory cards like the Nikon D4. I feel that was a major oversight by Canon in future-proofing their new flagship camera. They should have gone the Apple route and included cutting edge technology that has a future.

I just read this quote on dpreview.com ( http://www.dpreview.com/news/2011/12/07/CompactFlashXQD ) “The XQD format will enable further evolution of hardware and imaging applications, and widen the memory card options available to CompactFlash users such as professional photographers,” said Mr. Shigeto Kanda of Canon, chairman of the board, CFA.


What I don't understand is that if someone who is an executive at Canon is the Chairman of the Compact Flash Association, why the hell were Nikon the first to adapt that new tech into a flagship product before Canon? It seems like the brass at Canon don't communicate well with each other.

***IMPORTANT***

I just personally spoke to a guy very high up in Canon and he said there are very strict rules regarding who gets to buy the first (small) batches of the 1d X. He continued to say that when all the Olympics-journalists have gotten their cameras, and the rest of journalists, then the CPS members then everybody else, and he didn't have an exact time estimate for when you and me can get one, but he said it will be delivered soon, and that I really should just "forget it for the next few months"

The good news is that it isn't delayed at all, and there is nothing wrong with it.

Needless to say, this is extreeemely dissapointing.......

Thanks Viggo.

Like what you said, it's really nothing wrong with it.

The Olympics website quotes "...Media 24,562 accredited media representing 159 countries..." for the Beijing 2008 Games.  Assuming half of them uses still camera and half of these still shooters use Canon (and each uses two 1D X), it still takes Canon about 2 months to feed them all with the 1D X as they are initially making 7000 per month.

A more conservative estimate might be 3 months because of the supply to satisfy Euro 2012 as well.

Needless to say, this is extreeemely dissapointing.......

Ditto!!!  We don't know when Canon starts making it, but something like June for general public?   :'(

Yeah... June is my new goal, the 17th of May is the "4th of july" here in Norway, kind of hoping I would have it by then, I have a two and a half month old daughter, and kind of wished I would get som "1d"-shots of her as I have of my son, but it looks very grim at the moment...

SO when we can actually buy it, it's a frikkin year old, at least......

B&H just took 1D X product page off their website.  It had been there with "no estimate of arrival and price" for a long time.  Don't know what's going on.   ???

What makes you so sure about this?

Right????

Given today's announcement of an over-priced ($2,299) and under-performing (non-IS) 24-70mm lens, with a whacked out (82mm) filter size... I have no confidence whatsoever in Canon right now.  I really wonder if Chuck Westfall and the design team are sitting around smoking dank doobies off the profits from all the 5DMKII sales, talkin' about how rootin' tootin' their 21MP flagship is, and how all they need to do is make few "tweaks" and price jumps to beloved gear like the 24-70 to stay competitive.  Prolly a few lines of blow tossed in for good measure too.

This "high end DSLR" coming in "late February" better be gawd damned facking mind blowing considering the D800 and today's joke of a fahckin joke lens release.  Otherwise... I'm gonna start shooting porn with polaroids, selling it as "high class art" and slapping $4,500 price tags on prints for enlarged pictures of hairy vadge.

/rant

How's that for a fahckin rant??????????
