Doesn't sound good.

Wonder how this might affect prices (including discounts and rebates) and inventories...

Might have some impact if the closures are prolonged.

This could be wake-up call number two: 1.) don't outsource and from last year 2.) don't build plants on the coast of Japan.

Probably not too much impact on DSLRs and lenses but could possibly be some effect on compacts (depends what plants Canon have suspended operations in and for how long of course).

This is what is produced in the various Canon plants in China:

Canon Dalian Business Machines, Inc.
Toner cartridges, toner cartridge recycling, LBPs

Canon Zhuhai, Inc.

Compact cameras, digital cameras, LBPs, MFPs, image scanners, contact image sensors

Tianjin Canon Co., Ltd.
Manufacturing and sales of copying machines
Canon Zhongshan Business Machines, Co., Ltd.
LBPs

Canon (Suzhou) Inc.
Color and monochrome digital copying machines

Canon Finetech Industries Development Co., Ltd.
Manufacturing and sales of printers and business machine peripherals

Canon Finetech (Suzhou) Business Machines Inc.
Digital printers, peripherals, service parts

Guang-Dong United Optical Instrument Co., Ltd.
Compact cameras
