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.

Note these figures are for all interchangeable lens cameras including MILC for which Canon only holds about 2% market share. For DSLR, Canon seems to hold a commanding 52% share, mainly it seems due to a very high market share for the EOS Kiss x5 model. Interesting to see that 5dmkiii actually outselling d800 in Japan in spite fo the very vocal fanbase on this forum.

(I suppose the demise of Canon has been greatly exagerated by many here )
