High-Megapixel Telephoto Lenses?

I am on a search for high-megapixel (>5) long-range telephoto lenses (100mm or even 200mm+ if they're out there).

Anyone have any recommendations? I've hit all of the usual suspects, and have found very little.

Tamron has some fixed focal lengths up to 75mm, but they're classified as "suitable for sensors with a resolution of 720p or more." I'm not exactly sold on them being a solid choice for a 5MP or 4K camera.

Theia shows some 4K resolution and 4K "compatible" lenses up to 50mm, but nothing larger.

Fuji shows some zoom lenses up to 2000mm, but they only support a max of 2MP. They also have some 3MP options that go up to 80mm, so that's at least getting warm but still not what I'm looking for.

Am I missing some other major players that have high MP zoom lens offerings?

Thanks in advance!
