I'm curious: what's everyone's plan if there is no follow-on to the current K3 this year? Or next year? How long would everyone wait before concluding that there will likely be no follow-on?
Interesting question. Plan for what? Jump ship or buy the KP?
Personally I would be shocked if there is not a replacement announced before end of year. I guess to answer your question if there is no replacement by next summer there never will be one. IMHO.

Shoot with what you have, not with what you're waiting for.

Soldier on with my K-01 + K-5 II combo, with or without a K-3 II successor. Not worried about the future, as there may not be one.

With a K-1, KP, K-01 and a dozen film cameras I'm good until I die.

I'm not ready for a new camera. My only wish is that the k-mount will continue. I wouldn't care if it will be a MILC. I know I don't like MILC but, that's something I'll cross when it comes. Right now I'm still waiting for the K-5II firmware update so that I can use the KAF4 lenses which I think is the future of the k-mount.

Whether comes a K3 replacement or not, my plan is the same: shoot with K-5IIs.

Nikon users had to wait 7 years for the D500 (9 if counting from the D300). Patience.

Same plan as I've always had.

Use the gear I own, and don't waste an ounce of energy speculating about that which I cannot influence.

When a new camera is released, I will evaluate it on its own merits, and should it prove to be the next step that I am waiting to take, I will move to it. Should it not have what I am looking for I will continue to make the best use of what I have.

Same as yesterday.

And last week.
