Just to add my 2 cents, the Canon DSLRs hold their value extremely well. Simply look at eBay and see what the used cameras are selling for. If you buy the camera you want now you can sell it later when the new models are available. I just sold my 8 year old Canon 300D for 50% of what it originally cost me.

I want to affirm this. You would do well to buy now and sell in a year to so, if the newer models pique your interest enough to warrant an upgrade. You may well lose when compared to waiting and just buying a refreshed body in a years time but, the difference shouldn't be major. If you are a working professional, it isn't something that will have a significant effect upon your finances.
