Nikon (FX) DSLR cameras SALES figures
2

Nikon (as well as other manufacturers) never published sales figures of their digital cameras. Wouldn't it be interesting to know?  The only source that I know is Photosynthesis

It is a database maintained by Roland (in NZ) based on information received by lens and camera owners (that means: it doesn't guarantee to be 100% accurate).

From there I extracted this list (limited to FX cameras and a few 'historical' DX - the original list includes ALL Nikon DSLR's).

D1________________37759
D1H______________12383
D1X______________47109
D2H______________39823
D2HS______________7838
D2X______________66839
D2XS_____________25211
D3_______________95390
D3S______________65228
D3X______________23158
D4_______________74130
D4S______________27884
D5_______________23430+

D100____________302765
D200____________725085
D300____________588744
D300S___________311167

D500____________110759+
D700____________536297
D800____________346903
D800E____________76540
D810____________257217
D810A_____________2306
D850_____________73967+
Df________________57812

D600____________234630
D610____________614192
D750____________457373+

Notes:

  • In the above list I considered 'worldwide' sales. In recent years Nikon assigned different serial No. fields to different regions (e.g.: Japan - USA - Europe - Asia . etc.): this add higher uncertainty and possible sources of error.
  • I added a '+' for cameras still in production (afaik)

Even with the said limits, I think that these figures may suggest some interesting considerations on the relative 'popularity' of each model.

BTW: does anybody know some alternative / official source for this type of info?
