Yes especially when one reads said numbers correctly

Roland Vinks site indicates about 220,000 copies of the 300 PF sold in 3 years and 5 months and around 95,000 copies of the 200-500 sold in 2 years 10 months.

actually the Table on the site is '21230' under quantity of the 300 PF

Allowing for the time on sale difference sales of the 300 PF seem about 50% more than the 200-500.

Total of 92 400 comprising both series of the 200-500 = 4.35 x more than 300 PF

here's theLink

Thank you for the link. The global serial numbers for the 200-500 range from 2000001 - 2064xxx. But mine has the number 2097xxx. Meaning Nikon made at least 33 000 more, i.e. 125 000 in total.
