[Rumor] EOS 1D-X Delayed Even Further?

The info comes from CR. Looks like the mysteries around the shipment date of Canon’s next professional flagship are entering a new round. After shipping has been delayed for eight (8) months. Among the possible causes the following have been discussed: […] blame being placed on battery approval in Japan, FCC approval in the United States, production issues with certain parts of the camera, serious firmware issues that had to be resolved […]. Canon doesn’t say a word about the reasons. A few days ago we reported that first production models of the EOS-1D X are shipped to selected professional photographers for Euro 2012 and the Summer Olympics. Now CR reports that the 1D-Xs shipped to these selected photographers are indeed pre-production models, not production ones. If this is true, then Canon may definitely have some serious issues to solve with the EOS 1D-X. The mystery continues…

For the time being the EOS 1D-X can be pre-ordered at Adorama (click here), B&H (click here), Amazon US (click here).
