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:


"London, UK, 12 April 2012 – Canon would like to advise of updated sales start dates for the previously announced EOS-1D X and EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM lens, due to a delay to the start of mass production. The EOS-1D X will now be available to buy from mid-June 2012, and the EF 24-70mm F2.8L II USM lens from early-July. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to customers."

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.

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.

Given the hint of their announced reason of delay (...due to a delay to the start of mass production...), I guess they should have produced / delivered enough units of 1D X to Olympics journalists.  It sounds like the delay just affects the mass production for general public, while they might have created a separate production line for some sort of special (and early) order from large press houses...

That's what I'm hoping too, Platinum CPS members may still get theirs.

I don't like the not knowing though...I'd of expected something in my inbox from CPS by now.

well, these are awful news indeed, for all of you who have been hopin to get their gear on time...
I am saving up for the 17-40 to purchase it along with the 5D3 around this time next year. Hope Canon will lower its pricetag a bit in the meantime. But having read some short test notes on DPR, ISO should be at least one or even two stops better than the 5D3s...Well, that doesn't make things easier, but it rocks quite a bit once the new cam hits the shelves...

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.

maybe they have found that the 1D X and the 5D III have a common problem. That would explain the delay.

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:




Talking about quick changes...

The release date of the 1DX on the image now shows mid-June, and the release date for the 24-70 II shows first half of July.
