Canon released a statement where they apologies for the upcoming delay in shipping the Canon EOS R3. And the say it will start sales on November 27, 2021.
Sounds conflicting, isn’t it? From the machine translated text below: “the camera body EOS R3 and RF lens RF14-35mm F4 L IS USM announced this year are expected to take a lot of time“. In our interpretation that means that not all EOS R3 order can be fulfilled in the expected time. Sales of the EOS R3 will start on November 27, 2021, according to asobinet.com. Guess it’s first in, first out, with a lot of orders on backorder.
