Boy, never call Adorama if you are on the edge of buying, their salesmen are good and have pushed me over the edge everytime. I forgot I had an old film camera I've been meaning to give away that is worth giving up for $80. They also said they'd delay bill my CC until Monday so I can pay for it next month. So, my RX100 is on the way!

Yes, I was only waiting for a new announcement as it might lower the price on the RX100 - definitely too late for me to get a housing for any successor that will be announced. Thanks again for saving me $80!

Buy now, Adorama has a special deal where you can get a discount trading in an old camera. This a way to get around the manufacturers minimum price. You can also get an educational discount for a teacher or student if buying direct from Sony.

If a new model is announced, it won't be available for awhile, it probably won't work with any current UW housing, and an underwater housing that fits it will likely not be available in time for your trip.
