I talked to canon tech rep, on 5D3 firmware update.  I asked him when 1DX would ship; he thought next month.

So, if I am right, I have heard mid-June, but here we are 4 weeks from shipping and there is not a single official "we are on track for mid-June" statement from Canon!?! What am I missing?

Also, has Canon USA actually issued a statement regarding mid-June or is that Canon Japan?

Thoughts much appreciated!

The vendor I ordered from confirmed I'm 6th in line, and they had fairly recent confirmation that they will be getting their first shipment May 29th and the second on June 9th.

I'm taking it with a grain of salt, but if it's true my camera should ship June 10th. :D

Cany anyone else confirm the timetable Zouk set forth above?  Zouk, where are you?

I hope it's true, the sooner they ship the 1D X, the faster I can make a choice between it and the 1D mk. IV. I'm eager to upgrade my 7D!

Awesome.  Good for us in the U.S., if accurate. I'm in Florida.  Is your vendor one of the big boys (B&H, Adorama, Amazon (doubt they would provide a ship date), etc?

Translated from Canon Japan...

http://cweb.canon.jp/camera/eosd/1dx/index.html

below is translated text under center top heading 1DX (copy and paste the whole addy including symbols)

March... late March... Mid April... Late April... Mid June... one job after another passes by still using 1Ds MarkIII  Canon is worse than the girl at the end of the bar who keeps saying... "yes...maybe"

I think Canon should not bill us fully for making us wait so long for the 1DX since it was delayed and we had put money out. Maybe take $300.00-500.00 off...  but this is wishful thinking... We won't be billed until it ships so maybe bill us at lower price and credit the amount... ;D
