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.

About 1/3rd of the way down this page shows the latest specs, including the sensor it will get:

After reading this linkcontained in the link above, what do you think? If it does get that sensor, (which it says it will) it should be quite a camera, IMO

quite a camera, with quite a price?
