Nikon DL cameras shipment date is still unknown

If anyone is visiting CES, please stop by the Nikon booth (#14117, Central Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center) and ask the reps about the DL release date. I am also curious if they will have working DL cameras on the floor. You can contact me here if you have any info or pictures to share. Thanks!
