"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.

It's on paper - but this is a Pentax official's statement form an interview, something similar was done with him for LL (Luminous Landscapes) and you can probably google the whole thing. Who searches for knowledge he will find it.

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.

To clarify my statement - the H3DII-31 is sold for the price of 645D and is not a more expensive camera.

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

We were talking about annual sales an not about the year-to-year sales growth. The 645D as a new product might very well be the leader in sales growth.

I am dreaming to enhance the sensitivity of my own perception and not the sensitivity of my camera's sensor...
