Ron, no offense but your math is absurd. Yes, it's top 80 - but from how many models? Counting every kit, every color, DSLR and mirrorless included?
And on kakaku the K-1 is on #5. What does it tell you? Perhaps they had a few thousands units?

I don't feel confident commenting on this, but Ron, statistically you'd be right if the 80 represented all available models and kits on the market. Since they are purely the top 80 of an unknown number, you cannot deduct percentage from that. Granted, the ranking / unit sold ratio is definitely not a straight line, so lower ranks might be more behind the top sellers than suggested, but still, guessing any relation to market share from BCN figures is probably as useless as British weather forecast

This is the K-1 we're talking about. It's over 9000.
If it makes you feel any better, I got that reference.

Was in Japan two weeks back - the K1 is prominently displayed with lenses at both Yodobashi and BIC Camera stores.

Looks like having no sensor, meaning no production (or much less) end up in having not much sales.

At least Pentax had good sales from the start of the K-1 until the end of may (including selling the production run starten somewhere in march) and probably not so much in June and the coming two months.
