New Canon EOS R3 and Some RF Lenses Orders May be Delayed

Canon Releases a New Supply Shortage Advisory. The announcement reveals that new orders of the EOS R3 body and also the RF 14-35 f/4 lens can take more than half a year to deliver due partly to supply constraints, but also because of demand “in excess of expectations.”

According to Canon Japan’s press release, new EOS R3 (Amazon | B&H Photo |Adorama) and RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM lens (AmazonB&H) orders may be delayed for more than 6 months.

Here is the advisory (machine translated):

Apology and guidance regarding product supply status

Updated: February 28, 2022

Thank you for your continued patronage of Canon products.

Currently, we have received orders for each of the following products in excess of expectations, and due to the influence 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.
