Or perhaps the Canon Pro 1

Oh wait ... maybe the Fuji X-Pro 1

Seriously though, what is it with these companies practically copycatting, what are otherwise pretty boring names anyway!?

They are looking like a pack of lunatics. If they had realised they would be making so many models over the next 100 years then they could have started out with a sensible naming convention.

eg

first letter C=canon, f=fuji, p=panasonic, etc
second letter nenotes model range
third letter = start with 1 for first of a model type
forth letter and beyond can denote specialities.

so, the fuji X10 could have been FX1exr (assuming it was the 1st in this model line)
and F100fd would be FF27fd (assuming it was the 27th in this model line)

Anyway, its too late now so we will just have to watch as the years roll by and more and more ridiculous names roll out.
