Sony PMW-EX2 (PMW-EX1R update)?

I apologize if this has been asked before, but is there any chance that Sony might update the PMW-EX1R sometime this year? I think there were about 2 years between the EX1 and EX1R and it's been about 2 years since the EX1R was released.

Sony recently extended its XDCAM rebate program for another 3 months:
Sony Business Solutions & Systems - Featured XDCAM EX Camcorder Rebates Extended

I'm wondering if they are trying to clear their current inventory before they release and updated EX1 (pure speculation). The reason for the question is that I want to by and EX1R this year (for work) but it is not absolutely necessary, so I can wait

What would everyone like to see in a PMW-EX2?

Keep in mind, the Tsunami changed everything. Also, rebates do not necessarily imply an end of life fire sale. They are sometimes a marketing tool to handle a competitive situation. In the case of the EX series, against the 50mbs 1/3" 3-mos 3-ring cameras from Panasonic and Canon.

I just ran across this one .... note the comment about Sony's history of running rebates in March because it;s the end of their fiscal year:
