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.
