Nikon - D5300 vs. D7100 price with the 18-140 lens

Nikon DX SLR (D40-D90, D3000-D7000) Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review - forums.dpreview.com
Hi...

The Nikon D5300 bundle with the new Nikkor 18-140 zoom lens, still retails at around $1,400 (plus tax) in the US, which seems a bit high for the average user budget.

At the same time, Amazon sells the D7100 with the 18-140 for about $50 more only:

- D7100 and 18-140 at Amazon.com

So, the body-only price difference at the same retailer is about $350:

- D5300 body at Amazon.com

- D7100 body at Amazon.com

In other words, apparently Nikon offers the 18-140 at practically $0 discount for bundling with the D5300 and at a $300 discount for bundling with the D7100.

Both cameras were released within 2013 and are not expected to be replaced within 2014.

So, if one wants to get the 18-140 with a new camera (not, for example, with the D5200, which Amazon sells at around $1,000 in the same bundle), sometime in the next 3 months, is there any point in waiting for the D5300 bundle to drop significantly in price?

Thanks.
