With all the exciting new product announcements by Canon, it is quite disappointing to learn that there will (again) be delays in delivery of these new goodies. Shipping delays are more prevalent these days and it looks like the recent disasters in Japan and Thailand still have not been overcome completely. But while all companies seem to have problems with timely delivery, Canon seems to suffer more, perhaps also because they announce their products quite early on.
This time it is the delivery of the new EF 24-70 f/2.8L II USM lens, which was announced in February, that is delayed by a month (delivery date now in July instead of June). The new flagship camera EOS-1D X will be delayed even more and instead of hitting the shelves this month, is now planned for mid June.
