Loss/destruction of present camera
1

I haven't read all the replies yet (holiday weekend here), but the one thing that would motivate me to buy a new camera right now, meaning within the next few days, would be the loss of my present camera. Whether that means stolen, dropped in the lake, run over by a car, crushed by rocks or whatever-- if something catastrophic happens to the K-30, I'm buying a new one. Or possibly a K-50, or even a K5II if I can find one at a good price. It'd be a Pentax, so I can use my surviving lenses. I'd also probably replace the lens that was on it at the same time, though not necessarily with the same one.

Otherwise, there's not much that would inspire me to go out and buy today. The only exception I could think of would be running across something I really want used at a price I can't resist. The used market is buy it when you see it, but new stuff can wait.
