Any chance of a DA* sale...

Looking to pick up another K-3, first had dead diopter adjustment. I would like to match it to the DA*60-250. Is there any chance Ricoh will have a Christmas sale to push the K-3 after first adopters finish buying. Don't need the lens just yet but fould like it by next Spring. I was actually going to buy it a few years back when Pentax went nuts with their prices and it jumped to $2K. Went through the ringer in mFT till I just gave up on a good long tele. So here it is, several years later and I still want it as the only real alternatives are FF and cost quite a bit and weight quite a bit more. I guess the real question is not if there will be a sale but whether a new round of crazy price hikes will hit us.

MAP will be dropped over the black friday weekend, so I'd say that yes, you might be able to get DA*'s for a lot less.
