Instead of a further decrease, I've seen prices go up.
If you check the HitAd for that C*E* place now, the D3000 is at 68k
Several vendors in MC hv told my pal, who went shopping for a prosumer, that the prices dipped but went up by a small amount for all the models - no reason was given.
I'm looking for a new 70-300 VR but none of the prices hv gone down. (70-300 G is now available for around 16k though).
Warranty concerns aside, I'd still purchase from Thailand or Singapore for the price difference.
