Why is it that canon always late from its iniitial dates
Nikon tends to announcements date closer to release and does a much better job of delivering on time, this of course is easier, when you announce closer to release date. I just don't get the point of making an announcement 6 months before the release date and then delaying again - particularly delays due to functionality issues. Why not ensure everything working and you can actually deliver before making an announcement.
Its a recent thing and it looks like Nikon and Canon have switched places. Back a couple of years ago it was Nikon that announced stuff that would take forever to ship and when it did had all kinds of supply problems. Most notably their new line of super telephotos which only recently are finally actually in stock at most retailers (years after their introduction).
In turn, in the past Canon has had usually shipped their stuff pretty quickly after announcement and usually has decent supply.
Like I said, they seem to have switched places.
