Two Pentax Q kits enter the Top 20 in Japan (BCN Ranking)

It is new music Tuesday, but it's also new camera chart Tuesday! The new Top 30 of top selling digital cameras in Japan for the week according to BCN Ranking (via RiceHigh) shows two Pentax Q kits entering the top 20! The white is at #11 and the black at #17. The previous week they were outside the Top 100, perhaps due to "street date violations"? Oops, this is not the Billboard Top 200!

This is a solid debut considering that the Pentax Q opening prices are higher than some DSLR/mirrorless cameras with APS-C and 43M43-2X sensors, and there are multiple Pentax Q kits and body colors. But before you throw a party in Q's honor, please keep in mind this is only week #1, and week #1 often attracts hardcore-fans and early-adopters - just like music! What will happen during week #2? Will it crash like a heavy metal album or float like an Adele album?
