You can probably hear the gnashing of my teeth from here.

Yes, it will get lower but how much and how fast? The $100 price drop made almost had me. This $250 price drop I may not be able to pass up.

If this is the camera you want, and if you can afford it, you should get it now.  Even if the price drops another $100, you will not regret it very much because you will have your camera.  If it goes back up and you miss the opportunity, you will regret it more.

If it's not the camera you want, you should not buy it regardless of the price drop.

This, plus if you get it now from the likes of Amazon or B&H and the price drops within a week or two, they'll usually refund the difference no questions asked. I've had this happen through both retailers and all I had to do was contact online chat, tell them my order number and the price difference and voila! That easy.

Same for Amazon.

Going forward, the price will surely get even lower.
$950 is already a good price, though.

The DSLR market has become a buyer's market.
So, the prices, they will fall  8).

Is it worth missing out to save another $100.00? I buy as low as I possibly can. Eventually it's lower after going up from
what I paid. I just say those pics that I took cost me X number of dollars. They are always worth it to me. If I get a huge amount of enjoyment out of the pics that I took, then priceless! Go for it and don't look back.  ;)

Good deal, I guess.  However, the better deal was Cyber Monday when they had the 70d + 50 f1.8 + SanDisk 16gb card for $1,049.

It's the same scenario as with 60D, next summer will be constantly below 1000$

But yes - this is a good price now.

According to a B&H rep I chatted with this sale will stay on until they are out of stock.

Sounds to me like they are having trouble selling their current stock.  I think the pricing was too ambitious with the 60D now on the used market for $500.  The 70D is a great camera though and has the benefit of the new dual phase sensor for video.  The camera performs very well for even the current price.  I was able to capture BIF using it without a problem. 

I did, however, end up selling mine after getting back from my fall eagles trip.  I sold it for more used than what BH is selling it for new! 

Taken with a 70D and 600mm f/4L IS II + 1.4x III:

Cams: Canon 5D3, EOS M
Zooms: 16-35mm f/4L IS, 24-70mm f/2.8L II, 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II; Primes: 22mm f/2, 40mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.2L, 100mm f/2.8L IS, 135mm f/2L, 300mm f/2.8L IS II, 600mm f/4L IS II
Support: Gitzo GT4542LS/G2258, RRS BH-55, Wimberley WH-200

I have been resisting buying one, but if one of the one day deals at Adorama pops up with a free printer and $400 rebate card, I may cave.  I bought my wife a G1 X last year on one of those deals and sold off the printer and other items in the package.  My net cost for the G1 X was $150.

If it's not the camera you want, you should not buy it regardless of the price drop.

This is excellent, excellent advice.
