"afaik" was always an interested statement - any support?

Now on the contrary what I know is the following:

The market share and sales volumes are:

1. P1/Leaf/Mamiya
2. Hassy
3. Pentax
4. Leica
5. Other (Jenoptik-Rollei-Sinar project)

Source, please.

Bronica, Kodak, Contax and Fuji ceased their own projects in DMF and join some ventures but do not produce their own cameras.

This is from a general statistics, I doubt that there is any exact data.

I don't have any hard data, just the 645D production volume, strong sales on the Japanese market and a vague idea about the total pre-Pentax DMF market.

But you're talking about a "general statistics" - what is the source, exactly? I'm asking precisely because I don't have any exact data.

Now did you believe that for 1 year Pentax sold more DMF than both Hassy and P1? Even more so given the equally priced H3DII-31?

Given the long wait, and compared with either very expensive cameras or obsolete ones? Could be.

It is quite illogical and improbable to say the least. The 645D is cheap, but it still is a very narrow niche product for the price to make this sudden jump in sales.

It made a sudden jump in sales from 0 to 6000 units per year
