Canon delays EOS-1D X
Photographers must seek nirvana elsewhere for now, as the next epic dSLR from Canon faces a short delay.
Are you patiently awaiting the powerhousedSLR?
To those planning to buy the 18-megapixel shooter this March, well, we have some bad news. The release date is now "late April," according to Canon press releases in various regions (including Europe and Japan).
There's not much information explaining the inconvenience, aside from an ambiguous note about a "delay in development."
The company says it's also delaying many EOS-1D X accessories to match the new launch time frame. These include the GPS receiver (GP-E1), wireless file transmitter (WFT-E6B), battery charger (LC-E4N), battery pack (LP-E4N), wide strap (L7), and focusing screen (EC- CV).
