On what data are you basing your claim that Nikon sells fewer cameras than Sony?

I know this was true in IDC data from 2007-2010 (for example here).  Haven't been able to find anything for 2011-2012. (Well there is a report they want $3500 for )

The main reason Canon is a much larger company than Nikon is because cameras are a much smaller part of total sales.

Even in DSLR, I think Nikon recently had about a third of the market while Canon had half.  I know Nikon did improve their share in the compact market this year, with stronger Coolpix sales.  But in the past they really haven't been that strong a contender in segments other than DSLR. Canon seems to consistently have a competitive offering in almost every segment.
