Re: Olympus v. Sony names (+ my take)
In reply to Dennis, 8 months ago

I wanted to give Dennis's comment 2 thumbs but DPReview only lets me give it one. 

I came to Olympus recently after years with Sony. Sony — especially in the last year or so — had taught me not to try to hard to make sense of product nomenclature, so I didn't try with Olympus. I am able to remember that I have an OM-D E-M1, and I even figured out how to remember where the hyphens go by noticing a symmetry:

XX-N N-XX

I was grateful for Guy Parson's knowledgeable explanation at the start of this thread. My guess is that when I finally reach my 16,000th post, it'll all seem perfectly obvious to me, too.
