Even at the high end
For all the flack Canon gets from us passionate pundits, they continue to sell more DSLR cameras than anyone else.

Interchangeable Lens Camera Marketshare for 2012 (Japan)
Canon 28.6%
Nikon 25%
Olympus 14.3%
Sony 13.3%
Panasonic 11.3%

An interesting note about Canon, if you remove the lowend of the DSLR market (Rebels, D3xxx/D5xxx), Canon’s marketshare increases. I imagine the 5D Mark III plays a big part in that, as well as the EOS-1D X.

1.) As others mentioned, need worldwide figures

2.) Need a fiscal year-end profit/loss statement

3.) Is this ahead or behind the figures for the same time last year, five years ago?

4.) What does each non-investor indiviual hope to gain by knowing these figures i.e. will someone actually pick a DSLR based on a company's current market share of DSLR?
