Exactly! After the V3 announcement I am more and more convinced that there will be no P8000 at all, or if it is then it will be a continuation of the P7xxx series, i.e. using a 1/1.7" sensor.

Interchangable lens cameras don't compete with fixed-lens cameras.  You're either "buying a camera" or "building a system".  These are two different mindsets, with different price ranges, useful for different scenarios, and attract (mostly) different sets of customers.
