Makes sense. Outside of Japan, we don't have figures for 2012. From 2007 to 2011, the consistent trend was Canon gaining market share, and Nikon losing it (during the same period when 'Canon's sensor tech was stagnating,' although my 1D X sensor delivers much better performance than my 5DII sensor, so I don't buy 'stagnating' at all).
That "better performance" is more than likely due to the difference in sensor pixel size rather than there being better sensor technology.
