I'd also recommend the Pentax K5 and it's more recent incarnations, the K5II or K5IIs (which lacks an AA filter).  They're a very well featured, well built, reliable, water, dust and cold resistant, small DSLR. They're rated to -10C.  Pentax's lens range is well suited to the outdoor photographer (in the sense that you can buy some excellent small light primes).  The range caters for most needs, but they don't offer TS lenses or have the range of options that C&N do in very long lenses.

Suggest you read the DPR review.

Cheers, Rod
