It was to expect that he Coronavirus pandemic would disrupt supply and production chains, and the upcoming Canon Rebel T8i seems to be the company’s first product to get delayed.

DC Watch reports that Canon postponed the release of the Canon Rebel T8i (EOS 850D in Europe, Kiss X10i in Japan). The Rebel T8i was announced in February 2020 and scheduled to be released in April 2020. Well, according to the report we have to wait until June 2020. I’d like to say “at least” until June 2020. The Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 might also get delayed in some way.
