How well the FF would sell? Some amazing data ...
Apr 7, 2013

This is from the other forum, but some startling info.

+++

Today on Amazon sales ranking:
53. Pentax K-5 16.3 MP Digital SLR with 18-55mm Lens and 3-Inch LCD (Black) (Highest ranked Pentax)
54Pentax K-5 IIs 16.3 MP DSLR Body Only (Black)
55. Pentax K-30 Weather-Sealed 16 MP CMOS Digital SLR with 18-55mm Lens (Blue)
56.284 days in the top 100 Pentax K1000 Camera with 50mm (f/2.0) Lens

+++

In addition, there's about 5-10 FF's ranked above Pentax's highest ranking on the Amazon ... and a Pentax FF film camera, introduced 35+ years ago and discontinued 15 years ago, is selling as well on Amazon as any current Pentax.

As the other user commented, this info must scare the hell out of Pentax and Ricoh, because the K-1000 is a dinosaur by any comparison to current DSLRs, yet it sells on the same level as them!

Amazon is a popular place to buy cameras from. Although we cannot claim the numbers found there are representative of the overall sales of Pentax gear, it does indicate something .. quite bizarre.
