Black Friday or President's Day

Are the prices during President's Day weekend sales comparable or better than what is offered on Black Friday or Cyber Monday? As I was reading around on the internet President's Day kept coming up as the best time to buy photo gear. So which is better?

The past couple of years, I think the Black Friday sales were better. It all depends on what item you are looking for. If you keep a close track of prices over a period of time then you will know if you are getting a deal. Lenses are better priced in the Thanksgiving-Christmas season and seem to go up in the spring. Still, if the Christmas shopping season turns out to be a dud, then there may be some good deals late winter.

From what I understand listening to Adam, Pentax releases the retailers from the MAP(?) for Black Friday weekend. So as far as Pentax gear, BF deals are much better from what I have seen.
