Unless this "brilliant solution" is a vague assumption made from gathering all the unfounded rumors and hype on the Internet
I think this is the correct statement, judging from the source.

The countdown timer is coded to read your computer's clock by the way. It counts down to April 15, 10:00AM no matter what time zone you're in. You can verify this by altering your computer's clock and refreshing the page.

I'm assuming the real countdown is for April 15, 10:00AM Japan Standard Time, which is in a little under 6 hours.

Thank you for your explanation. The European countdown timer is different: it gives a result in days, hours, minutes and seconds, not in seconds only. It counts down to April 15, 3:00am CEST, which is in 5 1/2 hours.

Ha! Just about the only application where the gigantic sensor would be a serious drawback!

At APS-C, it'd still be a 12-13 MP sensor, still pretty durn good. If it has the framerate we're expecting, it would be a find wildlife camera. The larger problem would be the lenses. AF is very useful in wildlife.
