Time to buy?

I'm enjoying the show, and have a quick question. I'll be going to Nepal this autumn (shameless plug: the team I'm on won the Asian part of this humanitarian architecture competition: http://www.openarchitecturenetwork.org/challenge), and thought about getting a dSLR camera to take with, to replace my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ50. Will a dSLR make that much difference to the photos I take? As a once/twice in a lifetime opportunity, I thought I might invest in some nice kit. Is it worth waiting for closer to the time to see what else comes out, or buy something sooner, and get used to using it? Thanks, Gwilym
