Default D100 price drop?

Does anyone know if Nikon will reduce the price of the D100 anytime soon? I've heard before that they will do so to coincide with the release of Canon's more affordable and new 10D. Is this true? Can anyone provide me with a link to the news that I may verify it? Thanks much.

I think it's safe to say that Nikon will have to reduce the price. When is the question. The 10D is $500 less (at B&H) and it directly competes with it. If they keep the price difference that high, new buyers (like me) will not get the D100. If you don't own any lenses yet, the brand loyality is gone and the price starts to matter more.

Nikon Canada has already droped its price ($500? I don't recall.) Even at a almost a year old the big stores which cater to Pros (B&H) still sell an amazing number of D100s. I've heard it's their top selling DSLR. So until sales drop off some, I wouldn't be surprised if the prices stays up there...

Here is one of many links about that drop:

Looks like a $300 price drop at most major dealers now for the D-100.
