Yet the numbers from Ampere that started this discussion on the accuracy of current tracking have PS5 at 12.8m with 13.4m shipped. So clearly Ampere don't agree it takes 7 to 8 weeks to ship if their sell-through is only 600k below shipped for PS5.

This actually is a direct result of shortages. Fewer units produced and the need to distribute them worldwide leads to the pattern we see. Weekly shipment numbers are very considerably lower than in past years. So instead of, say, 100'000 consoles on any particular ship, there are currently only 20-30k on a ship. This fits very well with 600k in transit.

This is a no-brainer, you can check positions of any freight ships on the oceans and their schedules. This is not a secret, it can easily be googled.

You say difference between sell-through and shipped should be 7-8 weeks, difference between ps5 shipped and sold-through from those numbers is 600k.

So you are saying Sony is shipping less than 100k ps5's per week. And stores between September 30th and now (7 weeks later) only got 600k stock delivered and thus sell-through for ps5 would have to be less than 100k a week. No.

Allowing 7-8 weeks of sales from shipments to sell-through lines up with no official sell-through and shipment figures we've ever had.
