Veni Vidi Vici – Canon Already Has 22% Of Full Frame Mirrorless Market In Japan

Full Frame Mirrorless

BCNranking posted market figures for full frame mirrorless cameras in Japan.

The Canon EOS R has just been releases, and Canon already has 22% market share for full frame mirrorless cameras in Japan.

The situation:

  1. Sony 67%
  2. Canon 22.1%
  3. Nikon 10.4%

Not bad for the company that was last to jump on the FF MILC bandwagon. It was a jump start for sure. It has to be said that Nikon’s Z6 doesn’t ship yet. However, it’s clear that Sony MILCs are going to face some serious competition. Sony dropped from a near 100% market share to 67%, and that’s not peanuts.

To us it’s clear that Canon will have more than 50% market share within a year or so, or at last when they will have released more EOS R bodies.

EDIT: sorry guys, I mixed up the rankings of DSLRs and compact cameras.

A huge thanks to EdinaMN Guy for always remembering me about the BCN Awards.

BCN posted their market reports (for Japan), and there is little surprise overall.

Canon leads the rankings for compact cameras and DSLRs, and is second ranked for mirrorless sales (so much to the “EOS M is a failure” myth). In Japan Canon sells more mirrorless cameras than Sony.

Rankings DSLRs:

  1. Canon 61.1%
  2. Nikon 34.4%
  3. Ricoh 4.2%

Rankings compact cameras:

  1. Canon 27.9%
  2. Nikon 25.5%
  3. Casio 17.2%

Rankings mirrorless cameras:

  1. Olympus 27.7%
  2. Canon 21.3%
  3. Sony 20.2%

No surprises here, and little changes compared to the past. Canon leads the sale rankings for lenses too, although with only 21.9% (thought it was more, and where is Nikon?):

  1. Canon 21.9%
  2. Sigma 16.2%
  3. Tamron 13.7%
