“The EOS-1D X cameras will be arriving in mid-June to select dealers in small quantities and increase gradually over time,” a Canon U.S.A. spokesperson told PDN. “They will be here in time for the Olympics and will be available.”
The 2012 Summer Olympics run from July 27th to August 12th.
The spokesperson did not explain why the 18-megapixel, full-frame flagship DSLR, which was initially supposed to ship in March 2012, has taken so long to come to market.
The camera, which can shoot 12 frames per second and shoots 1080p HD video, will sell for $6,800 body only.
