Dear Cristian,
that is an understandable question, as there is a lot of artificial hype and talk about the resolution of sensors. Some people do not include all important image parameters in their assessments of the complete image quality of a camera and get to the opinion that high resolution of a sensor is the only important thing. But this does not give you a comprehensive picture: Its has to be taken into consideration: color fidelity and natural skin tone, noise floor, ease of use and mainly the reproduction of the dynamic range of a scene. Yes, of course the spatial resolution of an image is getting more important as UHD transmission in the internet is coming closer - if it is possible at all (mostly it is not, due to bandwidth limitations, not to speak of the compression which is usually applied to the images, so that at the end most viewers do not have any advantages of your originally huge files). A complete other thing is happening to high dynamic range of sensors and image processing: HDR is visible from any distance, in any resolution, in any fps, therefore has more impact on the viewer that the pixelcount. Our goal is and was, to give film makers a tool which captures all dynamic range of a scene with enough headroom for unexpected things - to deliver the most impact at the end. Please have a look on ALEXA cameras with Open Gate which create stunning images filling the biggest screen. ALEXA has HDR since 2010, and our cameras are extremely successful, also today, in a world which might be perceived as a pure 4K world changing fast to a 8K world - which it is not.
For selected projects there is also the ALEXA 65 which can be taken into consideration. So thanks for your comment, certainly we listen carefully to our customers, as we have done in all those years.
Kind regards
Henning Rädlein

Lots of thanks for informations ! I want to inform You that I'm Mountaineer, in the future I will make Everest cinematographical expedition using ARRI ALEXA SXT STUDIO. Is really true not resolution is important, the quality of image is really important. Was really nice to see shots with ARRI ALEXA , quality of footages is superb. When I will be on the top of the world I will do pictures with ARRI ALEXA SXT STUDIO in the summit of Everest. You have all my respects for your work making best cameras from the world.
