Canon EOS-1D X Delays
« on: April 09, 2012, 10:28:57 PM »
Why?
A lot of stuff has come into the inbox as to why the 1D X has been delayed yet again (Canon has yet to make it official). We’re hearing a late June or early July arrival of the camera.

The latest and best information I have says the camera is delayed due to issues with an accessory. It could be the wifi add-on for the camera.

1D X autofocus performance
The good news is the AF system on the 1D X is being called the “best” and “fastest” system on any current DSLR, this includes the new Nikon D4 and Canon 5D Mark III.

It can't be because of accessories... I mean, the 5D3 is out and the gps, wireless and even the grip is nowhere to be found. Dammit... Get it out already. My baby girl will be born soon and she was conceived after the 1Dx announcement....

The best camera with the best dynamic range with the best focusing does me absolutely no good if it doesn't get to market!

It the problem was with the accessories themselves, you'd be right. But if its something in the camera necessary to support the accessories, then they have to fix the camera design before release. Another good reason to use standard connection instead of proprietary connections.

There's reports of people receiving them already on DPreview. Plus the official launch was last week....can't believe there's a delay. ETA in the UK is 27th April.

Summer Olympics: 27-July-2012

Not sure if it's wise to delay the 1DX delivery. Photographers need some time to familiarize themselves with new cameras. :)

Interestingly enough - I just spoke with canon Australia and they advised that it is *still* looking at a late may release (was told would not be released earlier then May 15 half a month ago by my local pro dealer)

I have been on pre-order since the announcement - I'm tired of shooting crop (7D), I loved the 5DIII when I picked it up but I am just holding back for my 1DX (1 series lust is bad... esp after owning previous 1 Series before you know a 5 just wont do).

if the 1dx doesnt reach the pro's for the olympics this will be a big blow for canon and a massive fail hope its not true.
