We have received a report out of Germany that the CFexpress card reader that is to be included with the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III is going to be delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak. The factory that makes the card reader is based in China and from this report, it has been closed down.
Canon will instruct purchasers of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III to register their cameras starting on February 14, 2020, to receive their card reader at a later date.
At this time we don’t know if this will be a global issue or not, as some card readers may have already left the factory.
We’ll update you once we know more.
