Thing is I am super frugal and also stress about finances and value of items. Back in 2010 I was worrying about buying a D90 and asked to be convinced on Dpreview - I would have lost lots of opportunities if I hadn't made that purchase.

Each of us has different needs and pushes different boundaries with our efforts. Only YOU know what you need to tackle yours...

Go back to the points I made... what about the event you are anticipating stretches or exceeds what your current camera bodies can do?  Will you e shooting indoors low light or outdoors? Will you be able to get as close as you want? Will you be able to utilize ALL your lenses or have to restrict yourself for one reason or another...  Without answers to these questions (and probably a few more) no one can give you a realistic evaluation.

The one factor I wouldn't worry about is "as of yet unannounced product" UNLESS there's an aspect of your shooting it would not handle.  I have/use a D800E but because of what "I" shoot also have a D4s...
