As of today - from a Nikon reps lips - the 19th or by the latest the 29th of this month. What's the hold up? No dealers yet. They can't get the deal signed. B&H, Adorama, etc... nobody has signed on yet. He wouldn't go into details. Retail Price -- $1,999.95 U.S. (no lens, of course) but charger, etc. What B&H, Ritz, etc. decide to sell it for -- your guess is as good as anyone's.
