Maybe someone can answer this question.  If Canon has, in fact, distributed this camera to specified folks in preparation for the Olympics, why hasn't someone taken the camera and done some serious work in evaluating it?  DPReview, I would think, would have gotten one to evaluate by now.....just wondering....I ordered mine back in December from Hunts and just pre-paid the entire amount so that I could go on the 'A' list, which has me #10 to receive my camera when they get them....they are not predicting when they will get them but they did say that they think that they will have them soon, like by July.

I'm guessing because people are full of crap.

And Canon consists of people  ;D

Let's not get childish about this.

We know the 1D X is coming out. It is here in Asia, Europe too, and am sure we will hear about it in the US sooner rather than later now.

But we must remember this is the top of the line pro camera, and while there are some enthusiasts that will buy one, most are agencies, media outlets and pros themselves. Just by nature of their work, these guys are generally very busy, and have a heavy schedule.

I do not have the 1DX but am pretty sure I will be getting one within the month or so. Even if I did, I could tell you that to do comparisons, upload proper Raw images etc would not be a priority, and would probably take me 3 weeks at least before I even got around to it, that is because I look at my calendar for the coming 6 weeks and it is a nightmare.

Hopefully, someone who has a little more time, or someone has a vested interest in doing reviews etc (a website) will be quicker to upload what everyone wants to see.

So, let's be patient. The reviews will come.

Thank you for contacting _______. (Leading store in NY)
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
 
We did not receive the ICA1DX-CANON EOS-1D X DIGITAL SLR Cameras in as yet.
We had received some, but not enough to fill your order.
I really can't tell you when or how many we will be receiving at a time.
You are on the waiting list however there are plenty of customers before you.
Are you still willing to wait?

I am on waiting list in one of the nj stores, they told me I am 1st on the list there but no luck either, they were saying that they will contact canon to see when the shipment will be made but still no luck :(((( this sucks especially that so many people in europe and asia received theirs :( whats surprising strange that no one posting any raw images, that no one testing the high iso and stuff... if people got it this would be expected, even with pre production models you would imagine that by this time all can post their images, so strange with this camera...

Germany: I ordered mine in November and received it yesterday.



...and my colleague picked his one up today. At both stores they received only one piece and they expect to receive the next one next week.
