Waiting to buy the Oculus rift?

Hi All,
Should I wait for Oculus Rift S launch to buy the Original Rift?
Currently the Rift is priced at $530 AUD, do you expect the price to go down when the newer version is released, and so should I wait a month or so and get the rift for a lower price?


Edit: just purchased the cv1

    Not sure about Australia but in the US the Rift S will be $399, $50 more than the current Rift. But it's going to have improved visuals and you won't have to mess around with sensors.

    Personally I'd say you're better off waiting and getting the Rift S. Less hassle to set up, higher resolution, less SDE and less god rays.

    I expect the CV1 to sell out without a price cut :
    - The only physical IPD slider in it's price range.
    - The only OLED screen(s) in it's price range.
    - The only Windows 7 Headset in it's price range.
    - The best audio in it's price range.
