UK Price drop on the 645D

To make way for the upcoming 645Z it appears that the price of the existing 645D body has been cut by a number of retailers in the UK. It is now available for 4249 reputable dealers such as SRS, WEX and Clifton Cameras have all amended their prices at around the same time!

It has made me think about trading in most of my current kit, after all the new model is likely to be close to 10k and although it's undoubtedly going to be superior in a number of ways I don't think the extra 10mp's will show enough difference for me in landscape, portraits, weddings, etc

Although the body price will likely only continue to drop, the lenses are likely to increase in value again very soon. Most lenses are priced 30-60% less now than they were when I bought my kit in early 2012 when the 645D was newer.
