Canon #1 in DSLR, Mirrorless and Lens Market In Japan

By on

BCN has released their 2018 sales awards for Japan. Canon dominates DSLR, Mirrorless and Lens markets capturing both the #1 position.

Canon’s DSLR market share was at 57.4% in 2018, with Nikon taking the second spot at 39.3% and Ricoh rounding out the top 3 at 3.1%. Nikon did gain some market share at Canon’s expense. This is probably because of the fantastic D850 and Canon’s lack of new prosumer DSLRs in 2018.

In mirrorless, Canon has taken the lead in market share at 31.6% on the strength of the EOS M50 and EOS R. Olympus finished second at 23.5% and Sony rounds out the top 3 at 22.7%.

In lenses, Canon continues to remain on top with 20.7% of all lenses sold in Japan. Sigma continues to do well capturing the second spot at 15.7% and Nikon finishes third at 13.7%.
