It looks like the major difference between the two camera versions is that the "R" bit rate is considerably higher.

Gbps as opposed to Mbps as stated in the specs list.

Also the fact that the R will shoot RAW, which is probably where the R comes from.

Yeah, not just bitrate, different beast completely.    RAW shooting is the holy grail for all cinematographers.   It gives ultimate control over the image when you need it most.  Will also obliterate all the artifact issues.

Keep in mind pros are used to paying $20k - $70k for their cameras so this is a drop in the bucket.

I for one am very excited about the X5R, total game changer.

I know I will never ever buy a X5 R - I can not even handle the workflow it desire - it is for pros - and that is good.
But I could consider a X5 - do you think it is a significant upgrade ?

I understand the advantages of the 5XR for video, but is the still photography exactly the same on the two? Are there any sample DNG files from either camera posted anywhere?

I know this is difficult to answer at this point... I am wondering what the lowest shutter speed that can "typically" be used for "sharp" images in low light (e.g. a dusk shot of a house) in no wind and 5-10MPH wind.  
With the Inspire X3 camera I have gotten sharp images at .4 seconds in good conditions. That is a wider lens at somewhat lower resolution than on the X5 so I probably can't expect the same on the X5... or can I?  Besides the larger sensor and 4 additional megapixels  (only 12.5 % increase in resolution by pixel count) in the X5 over the X3, is the resolution of the lenses better, the image processing better?  I know there are a lot of factors because the larger sensor in the X5 will allow for higher ISOs with more detail and cleaner images than using X3. So are there any tests of the two cameras alone... sort of like what DPreview does with their camera comparisons as well as aerial test comparison?

Absolutely I do, the 4/3 sensor and interchangeable lenses are gold!   Depth of field will be an entirely new element here.

Just wondering will the x5r render a better video even if just shooting just in 4k?  As the transfer rate will be faster?

That's right! this price for the piece for professional equipment is alright.
