I wouldn't be super concerned about it at this point if I were a Canon user.  That said, there were many on this forum that thought that Canon entering the market would mean Sony's quick demise, and this does show that it was probably a little premature to wave the victory flags.  Of course, many in the Sony forums will probably look at these figures and chuckle at Canon's expense and come up with their predictions for Canon's demise, which is also premature.

What I honestly don't understand on these forums is why we're so desperate for our camera maker to outsell the others and put them out of business?  Canon owners should be excited that Sony isn't going to fold all of a sudden.  Sony has put tremendous pressure on Canon to innovate.  Canon likely wouldn't have a full frame mirrorless right now if it weren't for Sony's mirrorless sales.  And Sony users should be glad that Canon and Nikon have gotten into the market to further push Sony as well.
