I just watched the Japanese adverts. Now I know what the SF stands for in the name of my SFx - Super Focus.

I noticed in the Nikon advert (Ashton Kutcher) that the voice-over girl pronounces the camera as Nykon but the lens as Nickor. In Australia, the camera name is pronounced Nickon.

I was having a coffee at the local shopping centre this morning when I spied a bloke I hadn't seen in 20 years.

So I jumped up and went over to him to say G'day. I remembered that he had worked for Ricoh back then. He still does - so I asked how it was pronounced.

He said "Ricko".
