So even the most expensive DSLRs have AF systems with built-in limitations that even the cheapest mirrorless camera is free of.

disasterpiece: Correct me if I'm wrong, but $3000 buys you a full frame DSLR, a prime and a case.

Yeah - then go climbing rocks with that DSLR in a dive case!
Plastic bags and housings are a PITA when you are outdoors in the cold or wet.
Heck the film Nikonos cameras managed to work without housings over 50 years ago - sealing technology should be far better now!

justmeMN: Mirrorless cameras are just *so* last year. :-)

So Dino-SLRs must be so last ice age ?

Pushing the boundary for size and weight ....no thanks

If it does as claimed this will be good for outdoors use where the rain, saltwater and dust get on normal filters and end up a smeary mess a lot of the time when you try to clean up.

Interesting to see the positive enthusiasm for more size and weight as an advantage over mirrorless ...reminds me of how dinosaurs (dino-slrs) failed while pesty little mammals took over every niche they occupied. But hey if you want to persist with a viewing system that only existed because of film, your welcome to the size and weight penalty - which says nothing at all about about supposed better image quality.
I think between Ricoh & Pentax they could have done something unique in mirrorless, maybe in a few years 😣

Enginel: I'm a little afraid at this pace Pentax wouldn't finish the camera until after 2017. Maybe in January they will put pentaprism and eyepiece in mockup xD

And by then the rest of the market will have gone mirrorless ...😏

About time these aerial vermin were controlled. Too many instances of abuse of other peoples privacy as well as danger posed by stupid or careless operators.
If you want to fly get in a plane ✈

Didnt place for mirrorless at all I presume- nice to win in the dino-SLR category, I suppose. :))

The sky is out there - somewhere!

Thanks for the compliment re Patagonia. They certainly use some stunning images. However if they looked close enough on the full size image they might spot the angler is wearing Simms brand waders .. :)
