Still on first production run?

Local dealer (midwest, USA) just received new shipment of Q. Surprised to see bottom of camera still said Hoya on the little sticker plate. So USA must still be on first production run. Any other country have Q with Ricoh on the bottom plate?

Got mine early so it is Hoya, but what is the latest serial number? Mine is 4135085, which I do not understand unless they really made over 4 million of these babies by last October

I would imagine the Q received little public attention and there were still plenty sitting in warehouses.
