Interesting, Canon still has a solid lead in FF sales in 2018

Turns out there is a very misleading chart going around trying to claim Sony has a lead in FF camera sales this year in Japan.

But the facts show otherwise.

So far for 2018 in Japan here are the numbers:

Canon 39.2%

Nikon 30.1%

Sony 30.7%.

Sony and Nikon are a good ways behind Canon, but...

There are a couple things to consider.

  1. For most if this only Sony had new releases.  And they had 2.
  2. These numbers are mostly for before the Canon R was released and before the Z6
  3. Sony has been having a fire sale selling an old camera for $999.

No matter, Canon still has a solid and healthy lead.  And even the chart shows Canon % being the highest and increasing and Sony's percentage decreasing.

It is important to remember that when comparing monthly percentages with no totals, it is impossible to compare month vs. month.  Sales totals in one month could be 2-5 time more, so having a low % in a low sales month matters little, while high sales in a month with an above average % can mean everything.
