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.

Yes, this is (would be) a valid point, but in my opinion the "building a system" around the 1" sensor has a little sense. There is a lot of other brands having similarly small bodies but equipped with larger sensors, which have difficulty to become "system cameras". Nikon ought to from the very beginning introduce its 1" cameras with decent fixed lenses, exactly what Sony has done with RX100 and RX10.
