A surprise visitor in the test lab today :)
I have no idea about Oly or Pentax but Fuji naming system is better than most. T means slr-style do it all, Pro means wannabe-Leica, E means less-wannabe-Leica and 100 means lens is fixed. More digits mean cheaper model, as in X-T1 vs X-T10. Bigger number means newer model like X-E2 vs X-E1. The internals are mostly the same among different body styles, Fuji models vary in external ergonomics.


The problem is, X-E2 is same as X-T1 but there is also a X-T2, which is definitely not the same thing as X-E2 but is the same thing as X-Pro2.


Sony is also relatively easy. If the number begins with something smaller than 6, it's junk. Otherwise bigger the number, better the camera. They got it from Minolta, where it used to mean 8&9 are pro-grade, 6&7 are cheaper all arounders and sometimes more capable than 8&9, lower numbers are beginner junk but 5 are still mostly alright.


Canon probably has the best naming system since they went EOS in the 80s.
