Canon shows pre-production Samples of new Lenses at WPPI 2012

This is a Canon press release. Samples of the recently announced new EF lenses will be shown at the Wedding Photographers Trade Show 2012 starting today, February 20th, in Las Vegas:

WPPI 2012 will be the first U.S. trade show where visitors will be able to see Canon’s latest EF-series interchangeable lenses: pre-production samples of the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM, and EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM lenses will be shown under glass.

Hmm, «will be shown under glass»? Does it mean no one will be able to test the lenses on a cam? Unfortunately, the press release also states that

also on display at WPPI 2012 is the Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR camera

😉
But hold on! Maybe you can put your fingers on the D1 X:

Among the newest Canon EOS Digital SLR cameras on hand at WPPI 2012 is the EOS-1D X Digital SLR, designed to bring professional photography to its next level of success and achievement.
