Waiting for the new model before buying ?

I see plenty of people show up on DPR asking when is the upgrade for model "X" coming out, because they don't want to buy model X camera and then find out 3 months later than a newer camera is being released.

Some even say that if a new camera doesn't come out soon, they won't buy at all(the logic here being some hate buying or shooting with "old" cameras?).

The way i see it, the problem with this logic is ever increasing product life cycles, meaning less new cameras are being developed and sold, especially in the compact camera market.

How about you? Do you wait before buying, is the waiting game worth it in the end?

Personally i do wait before buying a camera, but only because i need time to get the money or i'm just waiting for a good deal to pop up.
