One more delay and they will miss the Olympics! This is scary. The dream camera for sports shooters may not be ready (and if ready, i'm sure there will be plenty of orders not yet filled) for the most extreme sporting event in the world.

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



This is my biggest problem with Canon. Stop the hype & quit putting the horse before the carriage!
Canon, you're getting a lot of flak because of sensationalizing your flagship before you can produce it.

Funny...  this time last year I was saying that it would make more sense for canon to release the 5d3 first and then the 1ds4/x and people argued with me saying that the flagship was older and needed the replacement and yada yada yada...  and i ate crow when in the fall of last year Canon announced the 1dx and people were certain that the 1dx would be released before the 5d3 and the 5d3 would be later on in the year.... sure enough my theory came true...  5d3 is here and flying off the shelves and the 1dx is still no where to be seen.  It's a shame we are seeing delays like this but in the end, how many 1d4 and 1ds3 user are demanding/desperate for the 1dx compared to 5d2 users for a 5d3?  I may be a minority but I suppose I feel the 5d3 is more revolutionary to the 5d2 than the 1dx is the 1ds3 or the 1d4. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

From Canon
We previously reported that the Canon EOS-1D X had been delayed until June and the new EF 24-70 f/2.8L II delayed until July, both have been confirmed delays by Canon themselves.
There was no real reason given for the production delays.


Hey Craig and folks, do you have a link to the press release?  Is it an official statement from US / UK?

As of now, Canon Japan still shows 1D X to be released in late April:



And they still shows 24-70 f/2.8 L II to be released in April:

On second thought, could any of these delays have anything to do with how manufacturing was hit last year in asia for camera companies?  I mean if they had to setup shop in a different plan, maybe things are not that smooth at first?
