Someone told me that Fuji made the S3 digital SLR and the S5 digital SLR but skipped the S4 because 4 is an unlucky number in Japan. I expressed my doubt because Nikon made an F4.
Can anyone shed light on this?

I think you will find the problem is in the Chinese/Cantonese markets, not Japan.
This also explains why the Alfa Romeo 164 was sold as the 168 in these markets and why the replacement for the Porsche 924 and 944 was the Porsche 968.
