This post is for you. You know who you are. You like numbers and you like to look at things like this. Admit it, that's why you are still reading this :-)

Top 10 Movers and Shakers
1. Casio EX-Z850
2. Olympus E510, body only
3. Sony T20 pink

And now the second part of our double feature, we look at J&R World (aka JR). Please keep in mind this is a just a snapshot, so long term conclusions should not be made with just this. Special offers and such obviously affect rankings. Out of stock cameras fall to the bottom of their chart.

Top 10 at J&R
1. Canon SD800 IS (2)
2. Olympus Stylus 1000 (1)
3. Samsung S603, black. (=) (Samsung is literally buying market share by giving this one way at $90). No wonder Samsung is certain they will be in the global top 3 in market share. They are giving them away, while taking sales away from the likely #3 company, Kodak at the same time
4. Olympus FE-230 (UP) (unless Olympus offers SD (like Fuji just did), they can't hope to become a market share powerhouse again)
5. Panasonic TZ3 silver (11)
6. Casio EX-Z60 black (4)
7. Nikon S200, silver (=)
8. Sony T100 black (9)
