So in Olympus forums the names E-M10, E-M5, E-PM2, E-PL5 etc etc all make perfect sense, no need for the product line prefix. In fact if we all got lazy then M10, M5, PM2, PL5 also make perfect sense here but would upset some predantic purist.

Dropping the E would get confusing for me. I see M10 and automatically think of the new Leica (yes, I know technically it's just the M, or the M 240 but that won't stop people calling it the M10), and with the panasonic GM1 out calling the EM1 just the M1 will be even more confusing on these forums. Personally I just don't bother with the hyphens.
