This is pushing it. They should not have announced so early. They should have waited till January for an announcement for sure. This is really bad for marketing and i'm sure a huge let down for all those who pre-ordered
They probably wanted to announce it before Nikon D4, which will, by the way, also not reach it's announced launch date. Again, I find it a good idea to get all bugs out before launch, otherwise they might get not so good reviews and that's nefast ;)

Indeed, the last I spoke to someone in the Nikon-system he said that "normal" customers can simply forget it until "over the summer"

I wanted the 1d X, but I have now settled with the 5d2, I'm not going to "check my mailbox" every five minutes to see if ther emight be SOME word of something that might remind of something about a date sometime in the future... By the time I can actually buy it, it will be old, and rumors about the 1d X 2 trickles in. Canon, I call shaninigans  ....

better to wait for a good one than having a 'bad premature' camera out!
