Upcoming Lens delayed
« on: March 24, 2011, 12:07:18 AM »
This is probably expected, but Canon Japan made an official announcement
on the delay of 8-15mm, 300mm, and 400mm:

The news release cites the damages to factories in the region as the reason.

No further release dates were given, so we'll just have to wait and see.

Update: more delays for Eos Kiss X50 (1100D) and related accessories - but only by a few days

I wish we could get more info on what was actually damaged in the quake/tsunami.  I know supplies will be tough to get.  I wonder if this will delay the release of upcoming camera bodies?  hummm....

Personally, I think it will.  Announce more when they can't release what they've already announced (and already delayed once without the justification of a natural disaster)?  Looks bad...
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

yeah, I agree with neuro.  canon's already got more promised than it can deliver, I think what most of us are looking for aren't more scintillating announcements, we're looking for hardware in hand. 

any more announcements before deliveries start sounds more like something a small indie shop like Red would do, not something a well-run corporation like Canon would like to make a reputation out of.
