Best deal on Pentax K-x?

Hi Friends,

After spending lots of days reading reviews, checking sample images here and all over the internet, I have finally decided to buy Pentax K-x with 18-55 and 55-300 mm lenses from Amazon.

But I read somewhere that mid-late January is the time when prices of cameras drop because of new launches during CES. Is this really true? Is it worth waiting a month or so before I take the plunge? A discount between 50 to 100 USD would make a lot of difference to me.

Is there any other online or brick-mortar shop reseller who will give me a better deal on Pentax K-x? I'll be making the purchase in states but as I'm not very familiar with local shops etc, I don't know which is the best place to buy DSLRs.

Posts: 218 has it for $640 I believe. Saw a link on Slickdeals. I really wish I picked up the 55-300mm kit instead of the 50-200mm kit, but I just couldn't afford it.

It was $650 on Amazon couple of days ago but has dropped to $635 today. I'll wait till Jan end before taking the plunge.
