    According to BCN Ranking, which collects point of sale information to assess market share in Japan, nearly all off the top 10 interchangeable lens cameras in May were either small DSLRs or mirrorless cameras:

    Amongst Olympus, Panasonic, and Sony mirrorless cameras, Olympus market share in May 2011 was 38.0%, up from 29.1% in the year 2010, while Panasonic's share dropped from 38.7% to 30.0% and Sony remained flat at 32.0% versus 32.2% in 2010.

    Makes sense that the entry level stuff sells best. Looks like the Sony SLT's aren't doing as hot over there as they are/were here in the US.

    Thanks for the info Amin. Great to see the little Pentax up there; she's such a beauty. I wouldn't have expected to see the GRD or DPs up there - as they are pretty niche but I would have thought that the x100 might have gotten a guernsey. Hmmm....

    DSLR/Interchangable lens cameras only so the Ricoh, Sigma and Fuji aren't counted here.

    :blush:

    Me and my uncanny ability to not read the fine print. It'll land me in hot water one day....I bumble through life on sheer luck.

    Mark's confession for the day.

    It's an old boy's club. If your lens is fixed, you're out!
