I'm holding out until March to see if an updated version will come out, but I am so tempted at this price!

Just looked there, $1402.93

Looks like the price went up.

I'll be putting a gently used one up for sale soon, keep an eye on the Buy/Sell Forum

Two years ago, there was heavy discussion on whether or not an updated 100-400 was coming, and then last year the discussion was that something was definitely coming (and nothing did). People are hopeful that something's coming out, but no one really knows.

In the end, you need to weigh your needs versus your willingness to wait.

I'm in the same boat as you guys. I totally regret not buying the goldbox deal and it was priced around 1,180.00 Let's all just hope that when the spring rebates come, the prices will go back down. I guess we just have to continue playing the waiting game....and hope they release a new version?
