No, it's a N turned on its side.

It's good that Pentax got rid of the D letter in all its cameras. It is now a redundant nomenclature to denote digital.

Yeah, but then "645" would be just as redundant, as it's not a 645 format camera, but a crop of the 645.

More than redundant, I'd say misleading...

Well, 645 does sound better and is easier to pronounce than 56415, after all
