Ebay experts: what will D600's resale value be in 1 year?

Impossible to predict, I know, but I would appreciate any educated guesses.  I am about to buy a new camera and am considering D600, D7000, Sony NEX-6, and even Sony A65.  Which one would have the best resale value?  Which one would drop the most in value over the next year?

My thinking goes like this... If I buy a D7000 body at the current price (~$1,000US), then a new D7100 is announced, the resale of my D7000 one year from now will probably drop significantly.  But if I spend more now to buy the D600, it is unlikely there will be a D600 replacement in the next year, thus keeping the resale value higher.  I don't resell cameras ever, so I have no experience.  I'm not sure if this thinking is flawed.

The D600 is way more camera than I need, quite honestly.  But if I can buy it for $2,100US and sell it one year from now for $300 less, I would probably lose less money than buying the D7000 now.

What do you think?
