I'm sorry to say that I know very little about pricing in other parts of the world, but that is a bit high if it were purchased here.
B&H is currently selling it for $6,899. I understand that you probably can't get it for that price, but you might want to try to bargain with them. I think at this point in the camera's life, stores such as yours may be afraid of getting "stuck" with it. Try it, you've got nothing to lose but perhaps a few hundred to gain.
Personally, I'm in the market for a second body and am waiting to see what comes out.
I also believe there won't be major changes, though, in an upgrade.
Whatever you decide, you can't go wrong. It IS one amazing machine as it stands now. If I could only use it to half its potential.
