Re-post, Never the right time.........

Canon gouges earlier purchasers of most of the camera products they put out. I was gouged when I was one of the first purchasers of the Xsi, but I knew it at the time, and considered part of the cost of having a new product.

The cycle is as follows:

1) Camera comes out, price the highest. When newbies ask whether they should purchase now, many will say, wait for the price to come down.

2) The camera now in mid-cycle of its product life is now cheaper. When newbies ask whether they should purchase now, they are told to wait as the price will drop even lower when new model set to release.

3) The new model is just a month or two away from release and the price is the lowest with the current model. When newbies ask whether they should buy the camera now, they are told to wait, this model will be obsolete with the new model having better features.

So the good news is, no matter when you purchase, its the wrong time.
