Here it is, folks—the highest resolution mirrorless camera shown at Photokina this year, bar none.
As I am always sayin', I am just sayin'.
UPDATE: We apparently either crashed the linked site, or it expired during the night. Here is the picture I originally linked to the words "the highest resolution mirrorless camera":
It's an Arca-Swiss LulF (I don't know what the first "L" stands for, but "ULF" is a common acronym in the view camera fraternity—it stands for ultra large format). It's an 11x14" view camera that has an accessory 8x10 reducing back. (I love that.)
I'd refer you to the website, but Arca-Swiss, famously, feels no need to conform to newfangled fashions—it's never had a website.
(Carpal tunnel symptoms acting up today, hence paucity of verbiage)

Featured Comment by Johannes: "Mike, you forgot to mention that this camera is full frame too!"
Featured Comment by Don: "Yeah yeah, but if you went digital and did a multiple image stitch you'd easily exceed that resolution for a fraction of the cost. Just sayin'...."
Question from Roger: "Does it use CF cards, SD cards, or both?"
Mike replies: It uses SF cards. (For "sheet film.") And fully mechanical IS.
Will Whitaker replies: "It uses credit cards."
Featured Comment by Karl: "In the never-ending drone about digital convenience, speed, flexibility, portability, stitching and so on, what's lost in the conversation is the unique beauty of a good large format image."
Featured Comment by Alan Winston: "Is that thing as lightweight (for its size) as it looks? That could be what the L stands for."
