Be careful with that date. It could happen, but check Canon Price Watch graphs for historical price levels.
I guess it ain't movin' fast...by Feb to May it could hit 2750 without much fanfare or too many tears shed.
There is a good reason why prices go up after the first of the year. Canon's fiscal year ends December 31. Their profits for the year are based on FY sales. In order to lower inventory and to maximize sales, prices drop in November and December to their lowest levels of the year.
