Nikon issued another delay for the Coolpix A900 and B700 cameras as a result of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes: the new release date will be in October. The good news is that the three Nikon DL cameras were not further delayed, which means they should still start shipping in June. Update: Nikon never provided a release date for the DL cameras in their last press release:

"The new release date has yet to be determined and we will announce the information as soon as it is decided."

Here is the full press release:

The following is an update on the release of the new COOLPIX A900 and B700 compact digital cameras (announced on February 23, 2016).

On April 20, we announced that release of the COOLPIX A900 and B700 would be delayed until July as more time was required for software adjustment. However, due to the effects of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes, release of these cameras is now scheduled for October 2016.
