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:
This is as official as it will be. Don't expect any other statement from Canon. They hope the 4K cinema stuff will be burying this bad news fast.
This is why they did not give any info before. They wanted to inform the delay at the same time they launched new products so that it wouldn't make much noise.
Very good observation! Too bad we wont know more for now...
