Thanks guys for all the suggestions. Though it looks like the Kx prices will fall further, I'll wait till Jan end.

It is difficult to predict prices. It appears that you are looking for a bottom, however you are probably not likely to find it. You only know that its a relative bottom when the prices go up. The $470 price appeared to be very good to me, especially now. In general, take a look at prices for prior bodies, and see where they tend to go (new). Also, realize that after the new stock sells out, folks will want a new discontinued body and the prices tend to go back up until they are just not attainable any longer.

My advice is to set a realistic price level, and wait.... It might not be the lowest, but just do not worry about it after the fact.

Take a look at buydig's prices...
Also, just look at prices in general...
Here is a link to probably the best site following prices that I know of that would give you a general sense of what the best current prices that might be available...

Thanks observer for the cameradeals link. I'll keep a close watch on that one.

You are bang on. The kit I'm looking for was $649 @ Beach Camera for a year, but it dropped to $629 yesterday. Looks like I should wait about a month or so. I'm in no hurry.
