Re: April Japanese camera sales ranking acc. to Phileweb

I would suspect there is some truth to this if they are number for Japan only. There are often unexpected statistics stories I've heard of

As an example. The PS Vita which replaced the PS Portable had been out for a year or so. Its sales were good, then suddenly one month the PS Portable outsells it massively. The answer was simple, a game that many wanted to play came out was only available on the PS Portable so everyone bought the old console. This is some hearsay story I heard.

Take the case of the Contax T2. Digital had been out for ages. Film was on the decline, then some celebrity in the US brings a Contax T2 with her on a night time talk show. All of a sudden the T2 and the T3 that have been discontinued for ages is being bought up in droves.

Who knows, perhaps some celebrity was seen with a GR III.
