We will do our utmost to deliver the product as soon as possible, and we appreciate your understanding.

This week many other companies like Apple (Macrumors) and Audi (Automobilwoche) issues similar statements that prove this is a global issue. That’s why may cameras (like the Sony A1 for example) are still not in Stock :(
The global shortage is now expected due last til 2023 according to a new report from Engadget. Sony and TSMC might even join a partnership to build a new factory but this will start production in 2024 only.
