Buy DP2x now or middle 2012?

Sorry in advance for a post that quite possibly can only be good for guesswork, but :

I have decided to upgrade from a rather simple P&S (Ricoh PX) to a DP2x. As I can't purchase one where I live, I have the opportunity of someone buying one (new) for me while he is in the States at the end of this year.

It's either now, or wait til summer 2012, when I will again have an opportunity like this.

I'm not under any real pressure right now, but if there is no reason to hope for anything significantly new in this model next year, I'd prefer to make the purchase now. Maybe end of year discounts as well?

I've been reading here about a possible Foveon model that might be made by other companies, but I really wouldn't like to make this my basis for considerations, unless there is some concrete info out there.

Any DPx zoom or interchangeable lens model coming out might be a good reason to wait, as long as the unique IQ is preserved.

So - is this anybody's guess?

Sigma DP2x
