So, yes - a little housekeeping would undoubtedly hold the fort for a short while. Even given my inherent reluctance to delete anything, I think increasing my storage capacity to 4Tb combined with ongoing good housekeeping as you've suggested would keep me going probably for several years.
I guess it depends on your purpose of purchase. As a photographer, I can see the idea of this camera, although…. why not either boost the sensitivity of the chip to compete with Sony's A7s or boost the pixels so you don't feel like you are licking the 5D3 in the ass….

The main reason, why mirrorless systems have not been even more successful in replacing DSLRs is the unwillingness of canon and nikon to make them. Meaning highly capable APS-C and FF sensored models plus native lenses at reasonable price/value points.
As soon as fully competitive offerings to fuji X-T1, X-E2 and sony A7/R/S are available from canon and nikon, the market will turn within 2 years and DSLRs will be relegated to small specialist niches - mainly fields of photography where large lenses are needed (Superteles) to capture fast action - wildlife, birds, sports.
The transition is well underway and CaNikons ability to to sell one or two more generations of boring iterations of their fat old mirroslappers to their more conservative clients is rapidly coming to a close.
I can see the generation gap everywhere i go. Best seen with amateurs/enthusiasts. At the last wedding i attended (as guest, sans camera) the pro aged 50+ was using his classic 2 DSLR setup (nikon D4/D4s) one guest aged 50+ had a nikon D800 along and turned out to be a pro. And to my surprise 3 fuji X cameras were present, all owned by well-off amateurs aged 25 to 35. plus of course all the mobile devices. Compact digicams only used by pne of the grannies and some not so tech-savvy looking uncles/aunties aged 65+ ...hehehe
The switch to mirrorless is not 10 years away, it is happening now. Solid state digital cameras are replacing mechanical mirrorslappers just like streamed music has replaced CDs after these had replaced vinyl LPs.
