Waiting for Maxxum 8D or 9D

I’m waiting for the next DSLR model 8D/9D or upgrade on the current 7D with 8 MegaPixel from KM. The possible 9D might be out of my range (under $2500) for a DSLR in a year. I suspect the price on DSLR will continue to drop as more advanced sensors are developped. DSLR will be more like computer that the price has been steady but with much more features, bigger memory & hardrive, and greater computing power.
