K-7 sales has dropped back to #18 and #24 in the chart. There could be fluctuations in the weekly sales chart though.

And for anyone doubting that the future belongs to hybrids and what general consumers really want, Olympus E-P1 occupies #2, #3, #9, #11, #13 and #27 in the chart this week! And if we compare the total sales of all the different configurations for each camera model, E-P1 would definitely be #1. Is this the first time for Olympus?

It most likely is. I haven't seen this big an interest for any Olympus interchangeable-lens digital camera up to this point, though I could be mistaken.

Like I said before in this thread IMO it is a matter of Hoya not being able to make enough cameras for the initial demand for a worldwide launch. After the first batch given to Japan they shipped to North America and latter this week to Europe so I doubt there are that many K-7 available in shops for Japanese customers (at least in all chains) see reports from local members that say K-7 is hard to find. I think the real measure of K-7' bestseller abilities will be when the production ramps up (probably a few weeks time). Until then ... not even Hoya can't sell whatever they don't have, have they?

Guess Samsung may be wrong about hybrids having only 20% of the market by 2011. Possibly 1/2? :-D. Back in the day smaller use to be professional and now its the opposite. Guess hybrids are changing that trend back.
