Another problem: While we all want a waterproof DSLR, none are waterproof (meaning you can submerge them without issues). Please remove its waterproof marking...

AND PUT IT IN THE PROFESSIONAL DSLR CATEGORY FOR GOODNESS SAKE! You stick the Canon 70D in there but omit its superior?

Also, in addition to my previous comment... WHY THE HELL IS THIS STILL CONSIDERED AN ENTRY-LEVEL DSLR????? The K-5 wasn't even entry-level, and this is a step above it!

It has phase detection, has an external mic. input and a headphone jack, and I still have no idea where you get the amount of lenses from... There are probably around 200 different lenses currently manufactured available for the K mount... Unless you're just looking at Pentax branded lenses. Finally, while we all wish it had 1080@60p video, its only 30p/60i maximum...

From the Pentax website I find, that it has an external mic jack, in the overview it i stated as "con" that it has none.
