The announcement of the Canon EOS R3 has triggered a wave of excitement through the photography community, with many photographers rushing to order the brand new mirrorless camera. However, just a few days after the initial announcement came, Canon Japan has already announced a stock shortage of the camera.

On 16 September, Canon Japan stated, "We have received more orders than expected… and it will take some time before delivery. We thank you for your many orders and apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers. Thank you kindly look forward for your understanding".
