Can 8K stills at 61MP Rival the 1DXMKIII ?

Perhaps those knowledgeable can help me comprehend a little "science" regarding the MKIII vs punching out 8K stills on a 61MP sensor.

There is a product called the Z CAM E2-F8 Full-Frame 8K Cinema Camera (EF Mount) that claims I can use all my Canon lenses.

Based on their 61MP sensor, what would their 8K stills look like, compared to the 1DXMKIII at 20MP? They claim 14 stops of DR. Am I wrong for thinking that this solution, at a lower cost, than the MKIII could offer sports photographers more resolution for stills???? And also superior video.

My concern would just be stills.  Thank you

Thank you.
