It’s in ready supply here too. My guess is that it’s not selling so Canon are trying it on.I’m not surprised at a delay, I am surprised at the projected duration. Six months is a long wait.
Selfishly, I’m really glad I have my R3 in hand, and the 14-35 as well.
For those considering the RF 14-35, it’s in stock at several retailers. If Canon won’t be shipping more for 6 months, now is the time to buy!
Another good reason to not use PayPal. One of many good reasons.Interesting. I wonder if that means they're not expecting to get it in stock any time soon.
I noticed their R3 page says "Your order will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Orders billed to PayPal, other digital wallets (e.g., Apple Pay or Google Pay) or non-USA addresses will be charged immediately upon checkout."
Six months is a long time to hold someone's money without shipping their camera.
Probably depends from where. For B&H, preorders opened at 6a on launch day, a member reported ordering at 8:45a and getting one, another reported ordering at 10a and not getting one. AFAIK, there has been only one shipment to the US. Canon USA had them in stock briefly the morning of release day, presumably from cancelled preorders.Whats the latest order date where someone has received an R3 so far?
