Is it a bad idea to upgrade my iphone 4 to the 4S instead of the 5?

I've had an iPhone 4 for a couple of years now. It's seen better days; the home button works only half the time, etc. My fiance recently got his first, a 4S, and the difference between it and the 4 is amaaaaazing. I am sorely tempted to upgrade to that for a hundred bucks, rather than wait for the new 5's to come out (esp since there's no guarantee now that the original 5 will come down in price).

however, the new 4S's only have 16gb, which sucks because I'm a photographer, but I can delete as I go, rather than spend $400+ for the 5. Also I'm still pissed that they changed the charging port's design. Then again, the 5's come in a supersized 64gb model, and I hear the new ones will have an even better camera.
Would getting the smaller-memory 4S at this point be stupid? Should I bite the bullet, save up, and get the latest and greatest, plus a bunch of charging adapters? And repress my current urge to throw my current phone on the ground and stomp on it? (Warranty etc. has expired.)
Aww crap, I don't know what to do. Help!
