As I said before, first and foremost, I hope there are no more fatalities and the recovery for the people is as fast as it can be.
On Canon's production front, if they ship cameras by boat, it takes at least 12 days to cross the ocean to the United States. So yes, the first batch would already be packed up and on their way. The second batch would likely be completed already and entering the final stages of packaging and preparing for customs. Now, if Canon ships the cameras by air, they are likely still in the final stages of packaging and have not entered customs yet, which means there could definitely be some delays.
On the personal side, as I explained in an earlier post, I abandoned my first pre-order due to rising currency conversion rates and I made another pre-order with B&H. B&H seems to think that I'll get one in their first shipment, but I have doubts about that. I mean, after all, B&H might be the world's busiest online vendor and I did not get my pre-order in at B&H until the middle of March. So I would not be surprised if I ended up in their 2nd or 3rd run. If the damage from today's earthquake actually damaged Canon's Oita factory, I may not see the camera until sometime deep into the summer or beyond. Again, this is not to overshadow the disaster in any way...just chatting (and speculating) about how this might possibly effect the shipment and distribution for some of Canon's higher-end models.
I guess we'll learn more in the days to come.
