Discontinued already. Pentax comes out with new models too fast. When my K5 met with an untimely demise, I thought of getting a new one but the K5 line was discontinued. Then I thought I would get a K3 but it was discontinued because the K3 II came out. I bought it in November and now it's gone too?

The K-3 II came out in April 2015...as a minor upgrade to the K-3 which came out in October 2013...I got my K-3 in March 2015...

I can understand the thought. I remember a humorous commercial years ago where a guy is driving with a grin on his face, with a brand new desktop PC in the passenger seat. He had just bought it. He drives past a billboard that was just update to the latest and greatest model (his was a model number lesser). The grin goes instantly to a frown.

Such are digital cameras today. They are just proprietary computers. I still enjoy using my K-5 II and K-r though (even though I'm looking forward to the replacement haha).

Too early for CP+. Perhaps we'll see two new cameras this spring?

2017 is the year for a new GR The GR III should be there before the end of Q2. K-70 successor maybe too. Once the K-3 successor is out they may be ready to upgrade the medium range body's to SAFOX 12

Perhaps there will be a second announcement dedicated to one or two D FA lenses, say on the 16th of February?

I sure hope so - but then, I see no problem with announcing a camera and lenses only a few days apart.

I'm pretty sure the new GR is coming soon. The price of the GR rarely budges in Japan, but it had a price cut in most stores a couple of weeks ago.

Yes. That's new. In the last two years it was over the other side, where Nikon is now. I think it's about the same size as before, or maybe a bit bigger.
