You should plan on using it as much as possible as quickly as you can. This is a very rapidly changing industry. No such thing as buying something that you can be sure won't be replaced by something new in a few years.

Chris, the question you need to make sure to ask is 'what am I going to use this camera for"? If you have an answer to that, and it seems like the features are what you want, then go for it. As Noah states, technology is constantly changing and I doubt many of us will be able to afford 3D nor want to deal with it anytime soon.

Also if you look out in your timeframe, hopefully Pan. will do some minor updates to the camera. A good likelyhood is dual card slots, which the competition has, and I can tell you from experience would be worth me selling my 150 and upgrading for. That's just one possibility. So buying that camera and using the heck out of it will be a good thing to do. Ultimately, I doubt that it will devalue enormously, and you can think of the loss in value if you do sell it as it's "rental cost' to you to use it. If you live in a major city, you'd be renting a camera anyway, and that would have it's cost.

I've really like my HMC 150, and still think it's a great camera for the price.

Alf

Also NAB is within 2 weeks. Hold off if you're not positive or in critical need right this second.
