Crap.  Damn.  $h!T.  F___. 

Oh well, my place in the preorder queue won't change, and in the meantime, my 5DII and 7D still take pictures.   ::)

All internal resources were diverted to support the writing of press releases for products that will not be available for 1-2 years...

Then they ought to provide some rebate for those of us you have been stranded between purchasing an old 24-70 model and something else.  I NEED a lens, but the new product anouncement is also an official anouncement that the old model 24-70 I'm about to purchase will soon be about 25% less valuable when the new one hits the market.  So what to do, Tamron maybe?

That's a bad news... I can't believe this... October 2011 was the announcement... October!!!

And they even have the guts to shove another camera EXACTLY like the 1Dx, but better, in our faces. I can't help myself to thing we are treated like crap by Canon.

"You know that 1Dx we announced back then? Well, it could have been better from the start but we crippled it to make room for the 1Dc... We are sorry to tell you like that, we just thought everybody would have a 1Dx in their hand by the time we announce the 1Dc... Oops!"

Man...

The product I'm looking for most from Canon is the 7D mk II. Although these two announcements do not directly affect me, it does get me worried that the 7D may not make it off the block until 2013!

Yes, I suspect that the tamron lens would be a good stop gap, for those interested...
What is truth?

And another thing.

Mid June is 8 weeks away, Original release was supposed to be in two weeks. So how come we didn't know about the delay a month ago?

...the old model 24-70 I'm about to purchase will soon be about 25% less valuable when the new one hits the market.

Will the current version suddenly take pictures with 25% lower IQ when the new one is released?   :P

Also, how do you know it will be 25% less valuable?  Did that happen when the 70-200/2.8 IS II came out? (Answer: no, the prices of remaining new MkI versions went up to full MSRP, a $300 increase, and prices of used MkI copies also went up by $200-300.)

If you NEED a 24-70/2.8 now, buy it.  A delay until July has been officially confirmed.  So what - there's no guarantee that they'll meet that date, either...

Now it looks like all Canon's R&D and production effort is invested into video stuff.

Such a pity story for still photographers... :(

Exactly!  This really frustrating as they keep annoucing stuff but dont deliver on what has been annunced already.

Couldn't have said it better myself, but I AM worried about my place in the pre-order queue.  Since I changed my pre-order from B&H to Amazon on the day it became available on Amazon (for better queue position), I am now worried that Amazon will cancel my pre-order because the camera won't be available for so long. I've seen postings from others claiming they've had pre-orders cancelled in the past when they were pending for more than 30 days.
