Canon EOS-1D X Delayed Again? [CR2]
« on: March 30, 2012, 12:31:35 PM »
From around the watercooler
I have heard from a couple of places that the Canon EOS-1D X may be delayed, yet again. The latest we’re hearing is that arrival of the camera body won’t be until June, 2012.

We’ve also heard allocation to stores is based on preorders from CPS members. In other words, CPS members will get to the front of the line for 1D X preorders. This may not be true in all countries, but it is in a couple I have confirmed.

This isn’t confirmed by Canon yet.

Anyone would think that Canon R&D had got hit by an Earthquake, followed by a GIANT tidal wave, followed by a nuclear disaster. Oh wait, they did....

They are clearly having a hard time, bless 'em.

This time last year I was giving money to the Japanese Red Cross, and now I'm cursing late cameras. What short memories we have...

I find it odd that people are complaining that the 1D is delayed and that the 5DM3 was rushed to release.

Last week I applied for my CPS membership in Canada, the $100 Gold membership.

My question is Can I order new equipment form CPS? I assume there are no discounts on new equipment, are there? (I did research but could not find anything other than the 20% savings on repairs and the welcome kit that also include 2 free check and clean)

So if true how does one get to the front of the line with a CPS membership? Notify your retailer like B&H?

Curious to know if I can order directly from CPS and how?

Thanks
John

Is it just me, or is that pushing perilously close to the Summer Olympics?

I find it odd that people are complaining that the 1D is delayed and that the 5DM3 was rushed to release.

Easy when the 1DX was announced in October and we are still waiting and the 5DIII is out a month after announcement.  However I do understand that there is far greater market share and profits to be made on the 5DIIII and it makes the most business sense.  I originally planed on getting a 1DX then the 5DIII was announced an it met most of my needs that I was looking to upgrade too, I had one pre-order until I reverted back to the decision to get a 1DX.

Would be nice to have it by wedding and sport season!

Immediately thought of you when I read this, Neuro. Waiting... waiting... waiting... Still sure the 5D3 won't be a serviceable alternative?

Same question as asked by another poster previously.... Anyone know how one is supposed to use their CPS membership to gain priority for an existing preorder?  Did you have to place the order through CPS? That seems unlikely.

6fps vs. 12fps or 14fps? I doubt it. People would likely stick to their 1DIVs.

Weren't they having trouble with the battery a while back?

It's starting to see as though Canon announced a little too early.
