Thom Hogan may be having a little fun with us based on info that he’s received from sources within or close to Nikon. In a recent forum post, Thom threw out some numbers while discussing the rumored Nikon D90. These were tossed around by Thom in response to a silly lottery number question.
Try something like 12, 4.5, 3, 11, 90, and 105. For the bonus number use 1080.
While it may seem rather trite, Nikon Rumors has read a little deeper into these and given us their interpretation of the winning numbers:
12mp, 4.5FPS, 3″ LCD, 11 point AF, D90, 105mm lens and 1080 video recording.
I think Thom is enjoying himself (and probably passing along good info too). Kudos to NR for reading between the lines. I remain a bit skeptical on the 1080 video “recording”. I would expect if that number is for real it has to do more with the interface and compatibility with high-def devices – much like Sony has done in recent history.
