Try quoting the full model name of other cameras...

Most manufactures' camera names sound silly if you write their full name out, just take these for example:

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7
Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS
Canon EOS Kiss X70
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II
Nikon Coolpix S9700
Fujifilm FinePix S9400W

Personally I think the only thing Olympus have done wrong is over emphasised the OM-D bit to the point that if you just say the model number (EM5, EM1, EM10) people won't automatically think Olympus.

I would have called them E-OM5 etc. myself
