Maybe we'll have red af points and f8 in the revised version.

That would be my guess. More importantly to me, where is the 200-400 lens?

I work in engineering in a similar industry. For such a thing to happen, a 8-12 month delay, something got seriously fuu-d up. Its probably in production or engineering but we'll never know. Marketing or management could have done it too by over promising on features or schedule. It's probably a number of things rather than a single one. If it was a single problem, those usually call for a one shot delay, say of a month. This long of a delay is probably due to a series of problems.

I would be expect to hear a lot of noise if they shipped their new flagship with the issues such as black/red AF points etc not resolved. Let's hope that all the issues that are currently known and most that aren't are ironed out before it gets shipped.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

Based on the time of the delay, this is not a firmware update issue. Something is indeed not performing as desired or there is a manufacturing problem. Canon would not miss the Olympics with a flagship sports camera because of black focus points. Nikon should take advantage of this and launch a major campaign before the Olympics. The Nikon D4 is a monster compared to the 1D mark IV. I'm a bit worried because so much of the 5DIII seems to be taken from the 1DX parts bin. I can't figure out what would affect the 1Dx so badly that wouldn't also affect the 5DIII.

It's certainly several months since the camera was announced, but the release date was always put there as March/April 2012. So really that's a couple of months. (So far!) I'd prefer they withheld the release until it's 100% right, even if it's post-Olympics. This camera can't be an anticlimax from Canon...it has to be an absolute killer. I'm enjoying most things about the 5D3, but just can't bring myself to cancel the 1DX pre-order.

Dear Canon: if cameras are not in photographers' hands for Euro Cup and Olympics... epic fail

In real life I guess the target group for this camera really don't care too much for an effective delay of couple of months. But still... *If* Canon misses to release the 1DX in time for the olympics then I'd say they have some serious operational problems. Nikon and Sony will hardly wait to exploit this...

What I heard is the reflex mirror problem because of the 14fps continious shoot

How often do you hear people say:

1. "dam it Canon, why did you released the product that is not ready"

                                                    OR 

2. "Why didn't Canon spend more time testing the product before they released it"

epic fail is when the 1D X is NOT working properly at Euro Cup and Olympics

Even on release people will still say it. Mainly on DPreview though where all the point and shooters go.
