Mountaineering and travel may require weather sealing. If that's the case for you, then the Olympus EM1 plus the 12-40 appears to be the most rugged combo. That's likely your best bet. The Panasonic GH3 and the f2.8 zooms are also weather resistant.

Files are good on these newer bodies. They print well and take a decent amount of post processing. M43 small, bright primes are a revelation. They are tiny, yet perform exceptionally well. The deeper DOF is also handy with m43 (double the f-stop to get equivalent DOF).

If you do long exposures the live bulb feature on Oly bodies is amazing. Open the shutter, wait for the image to look good on the LCD (with histogram), close shutter. Done. Almost like you're cheating.

Wow, that bulb feature sounds amazing! I think you are right about needing the weather sealing. Thanks for your input!
