So far I expect
1. 24-30 MP
2. New sensor -> What's an upgrade without one?
3. Quicker AF - > Again what's an upgrade without one?
4. No IBIS -> IBIS requires larger size and items I believe do not fit the XT model.
5. Smudge Screen -> Yes I know everybody loves them, but touching/smudging the LCD that provides all the important information seems just foolish to me. Major detriment in my book.
6. Other niceties, Possible but not for sure things like improved menus, bracketing, stacking, things we see on other brands.
Overall I love my XT-2 and don't see any rumors that would cause me to let go of the cash to upgrade, but time will tell.

From the rumors I have seen the better sensor and quicker AF will be enticing. I will be taking a serious look at the XT-3, but I suspect it will be more a matter of want over need. The jump from XT-1 to XT-2 had such an improvement in AF it was more need than want. Their marketing team is going to have quite a job convincing me of the need.
If they remove the joy stick to accommodate the smudge screen I will definitely consider that the best way to turn a GREAT camera into quite average.

I feel the same about my X-T1. I am only going to replace it when it breaks.
I own both as I upgraded when the XT-2 released and have been using the XT-2 since the day it came out. They will have a hard time pulling my XT-2 out of my hands.
On the other hand I pull out the XT-1 on occasion and find it an extremely good camera. I fully understand the sentiment here. The sale on the XT-2 was the larger sensor (16 to 24 mp) and the improved AF. The XT-1 lacks the AF of the XT-2 so as long as you do not shoot action very often there was no need to upgrade. Personally Birds In Flight fascinate me so I had no choice but to upgrade.
Now we have the XT-3 to tempt us, so I need to see a reason to spend the cash for the upgrade. I'm not sure the stacked sensor and improved AF will be enough this time. The XT-2 does quite a good job as is. The smudge screen is more of a turn off for me so the XT-3 so far only offers a limited improvement..
