Re: G6 is an insignicant camera...

Basically, from an m43 standpoint, Oly is the only real game in town, at least in the popularity sweepstakes. Look at this forum, there are waaaaaaaaaay more Oly fans here than Panny. Heck, E-Mx is probably more popular than ALL Panny m43 cameras put together. Even though GX7 is probably the most popular/interesting camera out of Panny for years, look how many threads there are of it compared to E-Mx? It's sad but for the time being, it's an Oly world, and for the most part Panny will be ignored...sucks but that's how it goes.

Seems incongruous when you consider that Panasonic bodies frequently dominate the Top 10 sales of Compact System Cameras on Amazon. Currently the G5 is at No. 1, the GX7 at 3, G6 7th and GF6 at 9.

The E-M1 makes an appearance due to its recent release and the expected influx of pre-orders, while the rest of the list is rounded out by Sonys and Fujis. The E-PL3 is the next Oly to make an appearance at 16th.

Is Amazon an accurate reflection of universal m43 sales? Probably not, but neither can it be dismissed out of hand. Especially when there's a complete absence of sales data from either manufacturer.
