A quick update on my post from yesterday on the order suspension for several Sony cameras and accessories due to supply chain problems – Nikkei now reports that “the impact is more serious than expected”:

“The shortage of popular products is similar online. Of the 159 mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras handled as of noon on the 22nd, 67% of 107 models were displayed as “low stock” and 13% of 21 models were “ordered” out of stock on the Yodobashi Camera mail order site. ..

Sony’s unusual suspension of orders is due to delays in parts procurement. For mirrorless cameras such as “α7Ⅱ” and “α6400”, we stopped ordering from mass retailers and changed so that pre-orders cannot be made even at directly managed stores. “Apology” was posted on the site on the 19th.

Sony had just apologized on the site in October, saying that it may take some time to deliver the new products released in September without mirrors. The company says that the impact is more serious than expected, and wants to alleviate the feeling of shortage at stores by narrowing down production to new products.” (Google transalted)
