Re: I'm sure that reflects the initial D80 channel stuff

Over the life of the cameras the production figures went something
like this:

20,000 *ist DS Black
26,000 *ist DS Black & *ist DS Silver
20,000 *ist DL
24,000 *ist DL & *ist DS2
7,000 *ist DS2 & *ist DL2
15,000 K100D

Just so people don't get confused, those were NOT month-after-month figures. Pentax sold what, 250,000 DSLRs last year, so those numbers you cite have to be maximum monthly production figures, not average.

There have been very few DSLRs that had consistently constant or increasing production numbers over any significant period of time. The D70 was one of them, the Digital Rebel, another.
