Why the delay?
It's been noted that an official weight for the new Canon EOS-1D X has yet to be finalized, I'm told the battery is the reason for this. It was suggested they're having “serious” issues with the new battery.
Another person has come forward and said Canon is working feverishly on firmware feature changes and updates to the EOS-1D X. The good news is Canon will do whatever it takes to get the camera to market in March as previously announced.
I'm told the $6800 suggested price tag for the EOS-1D X isn't written in stone.
