At the high end, the deals on the new Samsungs don't come close to touching the 2011 models at their peek of deals. The 64" D8000 could be had for $1,800 around the new year but the E8000 is over $3,000 now.
The pre-orders for the Panasonic top moel seems more proportionate, at around $2,700 versus the best deals of around $2,400 for the 2011 model.
