ulfie: Size-wise, it's a dang blunderbuss! Kind of negates its low-light, f1.4 shooting abilities if camera shake adds blur due to its size/length, no?
Weight alone doesn't negate hand-held camera shake. On a tripod, of course. It is LONG, 100mm/4 inches. Add the body size too and hand-holding steadily at low shutter speeds is dicey for sure.

It should be the CC not the T model. CC for Conspicuous Consumption.
The original-version jpeg sample pics aren't better than much cheaper camera-lens options. To me, at least, jpeg IQ quality is all I want and need and use (for now). To spend this much money for this quality is a non-starter for me. Your bank account may vary.
Nice image(s). But never split (or chainsaw) wood without eye protection. Never!
Wow, zits (aka pimples) can now be volcanoes!!!
Reality check: This is a PR (Public Relations) video, a form of advertising, not a detailed and exact QA (Quality Assurance) documentary nor one on Japanese work values, ethics and non-smiling. Get real folks. Caveat: I lived/worked in Japan for 8 years and have in-laws there. You want to see or know Japan, go there for more than a week as a tourist. Corporate PR videos are just that corporate PR. Not all that is Japan.
71 mm (2.8″) long make it a bit long for steady, low-light, hand-held shooting considering these two full-frame Sonys have no IBIS unless you're willing to pump up the ISO. The price for a "normal" lens is, IMHO, ridiculous.
Another "Let-them-eat-cake!" priced optic...
The Life of Ril3y par excellance!
Looks good, very good even. But not knock-your-socks-off better than say Olympus OM-D EM-5 with good primes, especially up to and including ISO 1600. Maybe Oly's jpeg engine is just plain excellent while this one is very good considering the sensor size.
Wow, I can see the veins and arteries in the horse's eyes. Incredible resolution. Other than that ... Maybe this is an electron microscope and not a camera.
Seriously folks, these were meant as initial shots, obviously not studio tests. Let's hope DPR puts out some more in a variety of lighting and subjects including landscapes which it should--not should--excel at as Sony touts the RX-1r. Give DPR a break, posters.
Home sweet home ... ?
Duh ... $3,000 for a body only doesn't sound like the FM or FM-2n I used to have. Unless the price would be lower, MUCH lower, I'll stick with my pseudo-Leitz Minolta CL Olympus E-PL1 w/ pseudo-but-better-than Nikon 45/2.8 Panasonic 20/1.7.
Nice take on a doorways' image. Unique, off-center perspective is refreshing after seeing a zillion centered ones. Well done!
OMG ... $799 for a plain-vanilla 35mm f2.8 lens. That's not good. Period.
This image really bugs me... Seriously, it's actually quite cool.
Gear aside, this is what photography is all about! Kudos. ulfie
Pretty sharp with el cheapo kit zoom lens. Slap on the Panny 20/1.7 and you could lacerate your eyeballs.
