Re: Advice needed, buy a Z6ii now?

It's impossible to give reliable advice because there are too many unknowns: when will it be announced, when it will be available, what will its specs be and what will the price be.

As for the effect on the Z6II's price, the current promotions make the Z6II body only slightly more expensive than the 4 year old Z6, and the Z6II+24-70 is cheaper than the Z6+24-70 (because there are no promotions on the original Z6). I think it's not likely that the release of the Z6III will result in the Z6II being priced lower than the original Z6 currently is, in which case your current deal will not suddenly become a bad one.

So as I see it it's a question of whether you wish to wait an unknown period to see what the Z6III brings and what it costs. I don't think there's a financial risk in keeping your current order, unless you decide that you do want the Z6III when it comes out (but that's not going to be cheaper than your current deal).
