just what they were thinking.

I think 5 because E-P(L, M)5

I wonder if they realized it would be this much of a success.  Could be when it came to naming the E-M5, they weren't counting on two more concurrent models.

Calling the mid grade the 10 (or 50), the pro body the 1 (or 5... or even the 7) and the 10 the 100 would have been more logical, and followed precedent set by the 4/3 line and even the OM naming
