My two cents (actually a penny and a half American)......
While you wait and wait for the camera eventually you will save money BUT think of the enjoyment and 100's of pictures you are missing out on.
Also if you wait for the latest model to come out you will ALWAYS be waiting because something "new and improved" is always around the corner.
I payed $899cdn for my C-750 in August it is now $749 at the same store last time I checked. Sure I could have waited and bought it now but I would have missed literally over 5000 pictures
Is it worth it? Who knows?
