Resurrecting the thread to note I received mine (at last) after a multi-month stint on the waiting list. This could be the advanced backpacking camera (uh, that's advanced camera, not advanced backpacking) I've always imagined.
For an interchageable-lens camera it's tiny but has capabilities equal to most of its giant dslr rivals. And at least with the standard kit zoom, it's weatherproof. I just have to chase down some affordable spare batteries (since, of course, its battery is different from the drawerful of batteries I already own).
