ST by major reviewers early on was touted as the best bang for the buck . . . Myself, I moved from a 2011 VT to the 2012 ST precisely because the price point of the ST and the professional reviews. The STs for 2012 have simply been the best mover over the GTs and the VTs . . . Demand for the STs has been higher than the VTs and the GTs even though more bells and whistles on the VTs and GTs. The UTs are fine, but do not have the customization support of the STs, GTs, and VTs for those who want bells and whistles and the best pq.
Supply and demand at work on the STs, making them harder to find at a fabulous sale price.
Probably going to be Black Friday before we see those earlier great prices, but you never know. If the demand for STs slows down, then supply in the warehouses increases, well, we will see fantastic prices again.
Probably time to take another serious look at a GT or a VT when sales hit again. Panny will need to move those like they have the STs, since the STs have sold so well.
