I'd like K-MX for APS-C and K-LX for 35mm... or, MXD and LXD, analogous to 645D
FF will be K-1 forever. K-1III, K-1IV e.t.c.
Simplier name is better for sales and marketing. Easy to remember. Your offer is too difficult for our times...

Since they already had a *istD, why not take a bit further? K* V+ (Star quality K-Mount, V+ for the new viewfinder, no more numbers in the name which would separate the future APS-C line from the Full Frame Line).
Numbered series = FF
Lettered Series = APS-C.

Then K-2 makes the most sense for the APSc Flagship, letting the others have distinct nomenclature. Simpler is better.

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the name "K-Nu" or Gnu (Gnu, (genus Connochaetes), also called wildebeest, either of two species of large African antelopes of the family Bovidae in the tribe Alcelaphini. They are among the most specialized and successful of African herbivores and are dominant in plains ecosystems.)
Lets see....Solid (Beast of a camera), fast (new focus system), graceful, specialized and successful and dominant in our own little echo system

With pages and pages of speculation about names for the new camera, I wonder if this thread has run it's course?

There is not enough room for K-wildebeest on the body.

Then K-W.

K-Win (great commercial success), K-Where (I always lose my things), K-Why (I should have chosen another camera), K-Way (take it with you everywhere), etc.

I like that. Speaking of difficult, how about OM-D E-M10 Mark IV... or the inhouse Ricoh classics GR Digital IV being a predecessor to the GR III...

As this thread has run it's course, with nothing but endless speculation about a camera model number.....
