I’m looking to upgrade from my T2i, as I’m planning to go on a safari in the next 1-2 years, and want some time to work with the new camera ahead of that. I also have the 18-55 and 55-250 lenses (non STM). I’ve listed the T2i and lenses on Craigslist, and the offers aren’t much over $200

My question is whether I’d be better off going for the 80d refurb with the 2 lenses, or wait for the 90d to drop down to the $900-950 range and use the existing lenses nd keep the T2i as a backup. I’m assuming both cameras might see some additional discounting around Black Friday (probably need to wait longer for the 90d to drop).

B&H is $1199 on pre-order so it's possible that it might get discounted but Black Friday might be a bit optimistic. Who knows though, DSLR sales are pretty sluggish and if the launch is a tepid we could see a drop in price. $999 might even be possible, though I might be more inclined to see some type of drop around Boxing Week.
