It took me 5 minutes to realize this wasn't an April fool's joke. For a moment I even thought I might have overslept a couple of days.

Remember, this is a specialist sensor design for vertical markets that is unlikely to be suitable for use in a DSLR.

actually it's not. it's variant is supposed to be coming onto a DSLR (soonish) unless Canon cancelled the project.

What Canon needs to make for me is a 120 megapixel monitor for my desk to display images from this 120 megapixel sensor :p

What lens did they use? Wonder if a sensor at 60 MP would deliver the same IQ because the limiting factor is the lens.

It's a 100L2.8. The profile shot near the end of the video (1:50) is pretty clear, and the 100L is a very distinctive lens.
