We’re told that we shouldn’t expect an EOS-1D X replacement until early 2016. While the announcement could come this year. The source said it may depend on what Nikon does in regards to a D5 announcement as well as getting the new sensor and DIGIC 7 ready.
2016 is an Olympic year, so we definitely expect a new flagship DSLR by then.
As Canon has said, they won’t be replacing cameras until there is enough technology improvements to warrant a new product.
We need more!
Amazon has begun shipping the Canon EOS-1D X I’m being told by a lot of people. Another big shipment to Amazon is expected in the near future. As far as I know, they haven’t yet reached the end of their preorder list.
The best retailer to keep an eye on if you haven’t preordered yet, is probably Norman Camera. They have twice had the camera available and in stock. A new shipment is expected soon. Camera Canada may also be at or near the end of their preorder list.
Niether B&H Photo or Adorama has updated me about the length of their preorder lists or when they expect their next shipment.
Both LensRentals.com and LensRentalsCanada.com have the EOS-1D X in stock and available for rent.
They won’t last long
Norman Camera has a limited number of Canon EOS-1D X bodies in stock and ready to ship.

Good to know!
A few people have sent me screenshots showing that their Canon EOS-1D X preorders from B&H has begun shipping.
I’ll try to find out how big the preorder list is at B&H and when they expect to fill all the orders.

My Canon EOS-1D X has finally arrived! I think I actually preordered it before it was announced.
Not many yet. I have touched this camera countless times at various photography trade shows, so nothing is really new. It is really nice to actually be able to put a card into one of the slots and save some images.
I will be using this camera pretty hard for the next little while and will let you know what I think.
Availability in the United States should come on Thursday or Friday, I’ve confirmed this with B&H.
