  • @Suave - "Bottom line is Amazon rankings are meaningless, they are not absolute numbers"

    Even without "absolute numbers", we can still get an idea of how well camera brands are selling relative to...

  • @Thoughts R Us - "Sony has made no inroads with pro's."

    You are clearly ignorant of history. Canon launched the EOS system in 1987. They introduced their first pro body, the EOS 1, in 1989. But it...

  • @Thoughts R Us - Please give us the link to B&H showing it as the #1 best seller please.

  • @entoman - "As a Canon user I'm probably a little biased, although I try to remain neutral and realistic."

    You forget that a huge chunk of Sony users (I would actually guess that it is the...

  • @Kandid - "3. You stopped at 8 - is that because 9 and 10 were Canons Termie?"

    Yes, in fact, just like Amazon's Best Sellers in Mirrorless list, you do have to go farther down the list to see...

  • "That comes across as an anti-Canon troll."

    LOL, no, it's not "anti-Canon." It's just stating reality. Mirrorless is, indeed, an entirely new game. I think many people *assumed* that Canon would...

  • @Kandid - I guess you are now going to say, "But T3, look at the numbers from Joe's Camera Shack which tell a VERY different story!" LOL.

  • @Kandid - I think guys like you have been ignoring the data for quite a while now. Do you not believe BCN's numbers? BCN reported that even after Canon and Nikon released their FF MILCs, the...

  • "And finally, why cannot the designs avoid distortion like they used to?"

    You're probably thinking of old prime lenses, which are well corrected for that specific focal length. But zoom lenses...

  • @entoman - Yes, Amazon sales rankings tell us what are *currently* the best sellers. And yes, some cameras sell well because they are brand new and therefore are attracting attention. But keep in...

  • @Suave - You only think they are "meaningless" because you don't like the results. And no, they are not "cumulative and favor the items that have been on the market longer." The A6400 is the 2nd...

  • @entoman - "novices, and those buying a "serious" camera after starting with a bridge camera"

    Most of those people would be moving to an APS-C DSLR or APS-C mirrorless body. Most bridge cameras...

  • 250 shots. No battery grip available or compatible.

  • Sony today is like what Canon was back in the 1990s: ambitious, innovative, constant desire to innovate. That's why I switched from Nikon F to Canon EOS back in the early 1990s. I think it's the...

  • Fortunately, people have more choice and options these days in the mirrorless era. We no longer have a two-horse duopoly like in the DSLR era. Competition is good.

  • @entoman - "Just buy and use the brand and model that suits *you* and your budget."

    Yes, people are. And this is being reflected in the sales stats.

  • Canon FF mirrorless bodies suffer from microcephaly.

  • @Kandid - When Canon launched the EOS R, it was up in the top 10 of mirrorless sales on Amazon. At this moment it's at #63. The EOS RP is hardly doing any better. It's at #68. The A7III remains at...

  • @Stu 5 - Oh please. You want to *believe* you can see the differences because it fits your agenda. But the reality is that people really can't tell the difference in blind (no pun intended) tests....

  • @tripodcat - The EOS M system is extremely popular in Japan. In other markets, not as much. For example, take a look at Amazon's Best Sellers in Mirrorless:
