D3x now, or wait for D4?

Ive had a D3 since 2007, and it has served me well-- but lately Ive been really wanting a higher MP camera.

I just dropped off a file at the lab which ended up being 30x40 inches, and 52 MP-- created by stitching images. Im rarely printing smaller than 13x19 anymore. And Im shooting more architecture...

Ive been offered an essentially new D3x for 5900.00. Im trying to decide whether its worth it to jump on it now, or wait for the successor to the D3.

Waiting for the successor, HD video is of no interest, but better AF, AF points covering more of the frame, better metering would be very, very welcome.

Any thoughts?
