Canon Says it May Take Six Months to Fulfill the EOS R3 Orders

Today, Canon Japan issued a press release “Apology and guidance regarding the supply status of products”, says due to the impact of global parts supply, it could take more than six months before it is able to deliver on new EOS R3 (B&H/Adorama/Amazon/Focus Camera/Canon Direct Store) and RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM lens (B&H/Adorama/Amazon) orders.

From Canon Japan:

Currently, we have received orders for each of the following products in excess of expectations, and due to the impact of global parts supply, delivery delays are occurring. We apologize for the inconvenience caused to our customers and business partners.
The products are scheduled to be shipped one by one, but it is expected that it will take a lot of time for the new camera body EOS R3 and RF lens RF14-35mm F4 L IS USM.
We sincerely apologize for the long wait for our long-awaited customers. We will continue to take measures to ensure a stable supply of products so that we can deliver our products as soon as possible. Thank you kindly look forward for your understanding.
