I think there is a larger likelihood that the price will go up.

That said, I would absolutely wait a couple extra months for the LED lights and other potential updates.
I agree price will probably not go down, but there was a significant price drop this summer while the exchange rate was roughly the same as it is now.

Another SA (I don't really trust his sales techniques) mentioned a price increase in Mar. Not sure if he knows or is just trying to gen sales - but I suspect he's right.
