Makes sense that the entry level stuff sells best. Looks like the Sony SLT's aren't doing as hot over there as they are/were here in the US.

Thanks for the info Amin. Great to see the little Pentax up there; she's such a beauty. I wouldn't have expected to see the GRD or DPs up there - as they are pretty niche but I would have thought that the x100 might have gotten a guernsey. Hmmm....
