Sharp must have money to burn. Here's video of a prototype at CES.....apparently, this camera may be out later this year? It's really just getting to bragging rights now. I haven't seen the need for 4K, I can't imagine who (besides Nat Geo) NEEDS 8k.

And unless there's a breakthrough in compression technology as well I can't see this camera recording much more usable data...

On the other side a new player in m43 might bring us some new tech, maybe even a new sensor eventually :)
