Most (all?) Japanese camera manufacturers skip number 4 in their model names. You can see the same pattern you noticed on EPs in e.g. Panasonic's G and GF series. (For some reason GH4 *does* exist, however…) And the reason behind all of this avoidance of number 4 is superstition, or tetraphobia to use a fancy word. Phonetically "4" sounds somewhat similar to "death" in many Asian languages. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetraphobia
