Canon EOS M is the Second Most Sold Mirrorless Camera in Japan (2013)

Canon EOS M

Source: sonyalpharumors

BCnranking published sales figures for mirrorless cameras and DSLRs in Japan. As you can see in the picture above, the EOS M is the second most sold MILC in Japan with a market share of 9.2%, topped only by the Sony NEX 5R. After all the bad press (not always justified) the EOS M got in the US (mainly) and in Europe, I am happy to see that this little, amazing camera is selling pretty good in Asia. I own an EOS M and I am more than happy with it.

If you look at the DSLR sales figures below, you can see the chart is dominated by Canon (10 DSLRs) and Nikon (8 DSLRs).
