I'm talking real geometric pixel resolution, not the X3 obfuscation

Respondents should consider the following assertion:

"Only few output media like large fine art printers support resolutions in excess of 10 MP."

Found in Section 1.3.1 here:

Those respondents who check 'More' should at least tell us where to find SA mount lenses to match
