I got my last 3 (yes three see thread: S1 Video Issue) S1's at Circuit City for 450.00 I returned the 3rd one today cuz they had no more in stock and to be honest Im thinking Circuit City may just suck. Gotta love that 0% till 2005 though.

Anyway...I am relatively new the Digital Camera market and I noticed that the price has been 499 since release. I really like this camera and am curious if I can expect to see a price drop soon?

I have found them online for as low as 356.00 but I dont trust that these are not greymarket.

I know alot of competitive cameras are about to come out. Panasonic Lumix FZ20 and FZ 15. Updated s5000 (fuji) coming out soon as well.

I just want the most bang for the buck.
