Eventually it will come down to $1500. Are you planning to wait?
It's the buyer's decision. Someone will take the time if it should happen soon.
It's not a camera I would buy. So no I am not going to wait. But to frame it correctly, it depends on how fast it will come down and how soon you need the camera.
With the new financial and fiscal policies from the new Japanese gov't, the price of Japanese luxury products, such as camera and lenses, should be expected to keep falling imho.
I would not say it will be down to 1500 any time soon, but with the upcoming spring rebate program and the yen/dollar exchange rate trend, there is a chance it will go down couple hundred dollars more in a month or two. Well, just my humble wild guess. Nothing is for sure.
Worth to wait or not? Ask yourself. Not me.
