Not sure I'd be in the market for this camera specifically, but Sony has been doing some really interesting things lately. I think of this more as a "concept car": they are pushing the tech into new areas. Wouldn't be surprised to see the variable OLPF more in the future (who knows, maybe Blackmagic can get inspired in this area...) The fixed lens is...actually kinda intriguing, especially if the glass is that good.
To go with the realism, there's sometimes a pretty detailed economic system underlying the fantasy world. Not sure if he's quite a leftist, but definitely has some critiques of capitalism in his work.
