"Chunky body defeats the purpose of mirrorless design; ergonomics leave something to be desired."

I'm not a Pentax user, so my interest in this is null. First, no comment on the ergo comment, mostly a matter of taste. But first part is not really relevant. What does ML have to do with size? The future is likely all ML and the Pentax option is likely going to be Nikon and Canon option when they move to ML in APS-C: keep mount, for obvious reasons. The option of reducing size is only relevant if one wants to produce a camera to compete with compacts. Many people don't want an interchangeable lens camera very small, for good reasons as well.

DPR sometimes misses it, like when they insisted that more pixels were bad for IQ/noise.

Only issue worth pondering about is AF. You can't compete with dslrs w/o a good AF system.
