Should I buy an RX-100 next week?

I've been planning to buy an RX-100 an underwater housing for a diving trip I've got coming up in June since about September. I waited because I have a DSLR as my main body, and while I'd love a pocketable walkaround to have with me always, I won't truly need it until June, and I wanted to see if something that better suited my long term needs came out while I waited - it has not. Of course I want to buy it plenty early before my trip to put it through its paces...

The reason for the question is, does anyone think that waiting another month or two will likely announce its successor and possibly cause a price drop? I visit this forum, but not routinely so I may have missed some rumors. I think it unlikely, but thought I'd ask before placing my order a month earlier than necessary. Thanks for any thoughts on the subject.
