The XT-1 is really for longer lenses that can be unweildy on the other X bodies and shooters that don't care for a rangefinder inspired body. Looks like a very nice camera.

Yes, the design is fine, but if it is really meant for longer lenses, what is the advantage of mirrorless over a conventional DSLR like the K-3?

The K-3 is slightly larger and somewhat heavier, but it also has IBIS, double the battery capacity, a larger and brighter optical viewfinder and in-built flash.
