BCN Rankings for 2017. Canon still dominates and grows it's mirrorless share

BCN released it's report today for the last year's results of their sales surveys. In a nutshell for the three centric areas we are interested in here:

Digital Cameras - with lenses

  1. Canon (27.9%) up from 27.3%
  2. Nikon (25.5%) up from 22.1%
  3. Casio (17.2%) down from 19.3%

DIgital Cameras - DSLR

  1. Canon (61.1%) down from 63.3%
  2. Nikon (34.4%) up from 31.6%
  3. Ricoh (4.2%) down from 4.8%

Digital Cameras - Mirrorless

  1. Olympus (27.7%) up from 26.8%
  2. Canon (21.3%) up from 18.5%
  3. Sony (20.2%) up from 17.9%

Canon continues it's dominance over the field with respects to DSLR's and contrary to popular belief, grew 2.8% in the tough mirrorless field over some pretty staunch competitors.

BCN records sales receipts from around 50% of all retailers in Japan. it's a highly accurate survey of the industry in Japan.

Edit: we have a real shocker when it comes to lenses (this was hidden in another major category)

  1. Canon (21.9%) down from 24%
  2. Sigma (16.2%) up from 14.3%
  3. Tamron (13.7%) up from at least 12.5% (Nikon placed third last year)

Nikon drops off the list for lenses.
