Default Minolta A1 Pricing Trends - Opinions ?

With the upcoming holiday season and new models here or arriving soon (300D/Fuji7000/828/etc) does anyone have opinons on pricing trends for the next month or two ?

The economy is tight. Brand loyalist's will claim their new entry is taking market share and lowering the competitions prices. There will likely be some price erosion, which is normal. Having noted that, do you see the A1 price holding between now and the end of the year, slowly lowering or dropping more aggressively based on competition.

Read: buy now or buy for $250 less in mid-December when the retailers have plenty in inventory (A1's and everything else...) I don't need an A1 tomorrow but I would like to get one soon. If there was no compelling reason to wait, perhaps sooner is better. If you happen to have noticed during your research that prices softening, waiting might be a "good thing".

Opinions eagerly solicited.
