Subsequent m naming...
« on: May 04, 2013, 04:06:23 AM »
If canon expand or improve the m series I wonder what they will call the new models?

Didn't Leica get a bit defensive when Olympus launched the OM-1 under its original name of m-1?

So will it be the canon m1 m2 m3 etc?
Or the mA mB mC?

Or maybe even names?  The m biaritz?  The m mayfair?  The m club?

Just a bit of fun, but thoughts please....

I tried to post a reply earlier, but it didn't work.

I laughed at the M Biatitz name. My thought is that they should market it as a travel camera, but with different naming for different markets. As you're a brit (Scot) and all brits goes to Ibiza, in UK it should be named M Ibiza, in Sweden M Hua Hin, in US M Tijuana, In China M Anywhere where they have a c@sino, in Oz, not sure but maybe something like M Beach Beer Surfing.

Canon use the number before the letter such as with the EOS 7D, so how about something along the lines of EOS 100M?
5D II | 24-70 II | 70-200 II | 100L | 40 | Sigma 50/1.4 | 40D | 10-22 | 17-55 | 580 EX II | 1.4x TC II

in Sweden M Hua Hin .... in China M Anywhere where they have a c@sino ....

Haha! You obviously know Hua Hin very well!

I think it should just be called M 0.1, or M&M, or My, or MP, or maybe just Q.  :o

But if Leica got a little upset then I would definitely call it the M.1 rather than M-1, just because that would be fun!! Then in a year the new new one should be called M.1.1, then M.1.2 and on it goes.

Added: I am glad Paul's question was not serious, cos I just reread this post! I need coffee, it is too early to be posting!!  :o 8) :D

Of course, I am Swedish you know  ;) . It's nice to get there sometimes to get away from the madness. When we need some civilization we tend to go to BKK or sometimes HH. HH feels like coming home.

The original model was supposedly targeting women photographers.  Why not Ms ;)
