"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.

Strange... did I missed it? Could you give me a link, since you would better know which search keywords to use? Usually, the best info is in Japanese - I hope I don't have to read kanji

I find it strange that a Pentax official would make such statements, regarding market share.

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.

No, it's the one using an obsolete sensor. True, it's "only" ~ $2000 more expensive than the 645D (estimated; I could only find the price with a 80mm lens).

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.

You were talking about a "sudden jump in sales". What other sudden jump in sales, if not from 0 to 6000 units?

0 - 6000 units? its nothing, if 645d price come down to $2500, it will sell 1000000 units.
