And then in market share. We have not seen Nikon is gaining market share since 2010 when Canon still leaded 2:1 in DSLR market over Nikon.

fiscal year ending 31-Dec 2012 (Worldwide)


  • sold 8.2 million interchangeable lens cameras
  • sold 18.3 million compact cameras

Nikon (fiscal year ending 31-Mar 2013 Nikon... uses a different year point )

  • sold 7.0 million interchangeable lens cameras
  • sold 17.1 million compact cameras

So based on that one year they are pretty even. Not sure it means much though. I think the drop in the high-end market will give Canon an advantage going forward as well as their emphasis on video. May not be the best of times for Pro photogs going forward. We may all be shooting GoPro soon You can see the Morngstar published reports. Might be some deferred sales included due to natural disasters as well.

LOL. Please give links as not sure where you get these numbers.

They two companies always have a different fiscal year in that regard.
