K2000 / Km pricing forecast?

Ok, so I am very close to settling on a getting K2000 as my first DSLR.

Here are my questions:

I hear that Pentax is going to soon be announcing 3 new cameras, right?
I would assume they would be the equivalent of K30d, K300d, and something

Do you think the 3rd camera will be a update to the K2000?
This would see odd, seeing as the K2000 just came out...

Either way, I'm curious what the likelihood is of the K2000's price
dropping significantly over the next few months, and also if I am
going to regret buying the K2000 because they release an updated
version that fixes the K2000 issues with AF confirmation and such.

I have no idea how this DSLR world works from a marketing/pricing perspective.

Any guesses?

Since the K2000/K-m is so new new I wouldn't really expect a replacement model at this time. I also wouldn't put too much stock into an announcement of three new cameras, either, at least not all at once. I'd say there's a fair chance that the K2000 price will go down but how quickly, how much...wouldn't hazard a guess. If someone told you you could shoot the K2000 for the next five months for $100, would you accept that offer?
