Canon EOS 1DX review

Canon_EOS_1D_X_release_dateFirst sales of the Canon EOS-1D X have been pushed back to June 2012, according to Canon.

Canon says a delay to the start of mass production is the reason for the revised EOS-1D X release date.

Canon also said the EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM lens will also be subject to a delay in production and will now be available from early July.

Previously it was announced that the Canon EOS-1D X release date would be the end of April 2012.

Canon says it apologises for any inconvenience.
