All Pentax DSLR sold models numbers

are posted here: Pentax DSLR in Japan: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review
It's not clear is it for Japan only or not. Still quite interesting reading.

It reads like it's Japan only. The K10D was quite popular, but to be fair it was on the market for a good while if I remember well.

Wow, thank you.
This is quite interesting, especially seeing the 645D at 5526 pcs, which is twice as much as f.e. Leica M9 or almost the same as the Canon high-end FF offering 1-DSM3.

645D is a real money cow!

It looks like 645D outsold K-5 greatly :-)
There is simple math:
  • 5,526 of 645D generated $55,2M revenue
  • 22,971 of K-5 generated 37.8M revenue

I don't know what the both margins are, but who said that 645D was not a smart move?

The numbers seem kind of wonky. I thought the K-x was suppose to be the most popular Pentax in a long time yet only had 17,000 sales?

Ok, something is strange with the numbers. Maybe the comment from Yukumizu clears up the things:

Would you care to elaborate on that rather cryptic comment?
Yes as I know no Japanese it looks as I have given you wrong info. Yukumizu can you find any info about sold cameras in Japan or wordwide?

Not a single comment for the *ist DS2 that is the last Pentax DSLR that supports the Pentax TTL flashes like the AF500FTZ and AF400T.
