The live press event released on youtube indicated that the A7r uses a different metal chassis for the top plate and greater structural rigidity at the lens mount reinforcement vs. the A7 which has none.

Yep, I confirmed this when interviewing one of the top Sony guys from Japan. I've included it in my video preview.
