Last week I reported that the RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM would be delayed until January 2021 based on retailer notifications, now it appears that Canon has delayed the lens until early March due to production challenges.
From Canon: (Google Translated)
Regarding the “RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM” announced on November 4, 2020, and scheduled to be released in late December, due to production reasons, we cannot prepare a sufficient supply amount for the release. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the release in early March 2021.
We would like to inform you and deeply apologize.
Scheduled release date

- (After change) Scheduled to be released in early March 2021
We apologize for the inconvenience caused to the customers who are waiting for us, but we will do our utmost to launch it, and we appreciate your continued patronage.
