Based on the L-mount and for the first time, a traditional Bayer sensor:

I guess the new 45mm f/2.8 lens will be a good match for this camera but I can't imagine mounting any other of the extremely huge L-mount lenses on this little camera.

Sooner or later, people would realize that at the very least they need that grip for the camera.

I wonder how the heck you are suppoed to carry this? No sign of any hand grip and it is tiny. I am guessing there will be a load of add-ons.
"The fp is no slouch in the video department, either. It supports 12-bit UHD 4K/24p CinemaDNG video and offers a waveform monitor" sounds like it will be a great video camera (the video hints heavily at that) but without a flippy screen? How long before the overheating begins (does look like there are ventilation gaps behind the screen top and sides) ? ;)

It is a totally modular system with lots of add-ons.  One of the add on modules is a hand grip.

So long as they do not charge along Apple's lines for bits you actually need :)
