I know that this is a bit time-bound and subjective question, but this forum is probably the best place to ask.
I want to buy a Canon T2I (Rebel 550D0), which is currently USD 899 (incl 18-55 Lens). With an instant rebate of USD 50, it comes to USD 850. Convert that to Indian Rupees, and it becomes an even larger sum (for me ;) )
Would like to know, given the recent announcement of 60D etc, and the holiday season, approximately how much the 550D would be available for around Thanksgiving season.
If there are huge (15-20+ %) discounts then I can hold off making a purchase here and get the camera from US.
If there are significant price reductions in street price, then also I can hold off making a purchase here, and either get it from US or wait for the reduction to percolate to the market here, and purchase locally (provides warranty)
If the discounts are not that significant, will buy here (at least the warranty part will be covered on a local purchase).
Also, How are prices in the US compared to Singapore ? Singapore is an attractive place for us Indians to get equipment from, given its proximity.
