There is probably only so much useful insight that can be based on "absolute sales" figures for Pentax at this time, due to the relatively limited production capability. They may be able to sell every K-1 they can manufacture, and the absolute sales figures may still appear relatively low compared to the (currently) larger volume companies. But if a company can sell every instance of a product they can produce, what does that say about the offering? I wouldn't be a bit suprised if the K-1 remains in that state for a very long time...

drop to #72
could the earthquake and low inventory play role?
A lot of Q-S1s in the chart, perhaps a final sale has started. We've seen this with the original Q which jumped to no.1 at one point if I remember well

At one noted camera store, Map Camera, the K-1 was the second best selling camera in May.

Of course, the fact that the new pro Canon was number three should tell you that that this is quite a serious camera store and not very indicative of the mass market.

It has been selling really good. No wonder the stock is really thin in Amerika. With this situation, why pentax doesn't improve their product capacity ? Or is it the problem in sensor supply from Sony ?

Perhaps their production plan includes more new cameras and lenses, soon to be announced - higher volume cameras and lenses, requiring more production capacity.

The camera is only on sale for 6 weeks. So if the waiting time is the same 6 week's from now as today, one might take a look at production capacity. For now I guess having some people wait a little is not a big problem. Better to sell out everything you produce then to have a to large production facility.

No. 49 for the latest week on BCN. Cannot remember any previous Pentax DSLR that would stay on BCN chart so long after launch
There's plenty of presumably highly discounted K-S1s as well
