That is interesting... my local AD has lots of banners and large signs outside their storefront... all are Nikon, none are Canon. Inside the two biggest display shelves are Nikon and Canon. Every time I have gone in (probably a couple times a week, to once a month), I've never seen anyone actually buy anything Nikon. But, I've seen a lot of people buy Canon gear. I'm not saying that they aren't selling a lot of Nikon gear, because I'm sure they are, but those are just my observations.
I once asked the rental section of the store a similar question... what do you rent out more often? The answer was Canon equipment 3x as often. Actually, Nikon was only rented slightly more often than Mamiya, Leaf, and the Hassys. In fact Zeiss lenses were more often rented than Nikon lenses.
What's interesting is that when I went to the Browns game last month, there were only two photographers shooting Nikon. The other dozen were shooting Canon. Why?
But then, last year I went to Belize for vacation. While walking around, going on excursions, etc, I did not see one other Canon... not one... not even a tiny PowerShot. All I saw were Nikon dSLRs, compacts, etc. I was the only one I saw shooting with my Canon (5D2 at the time).
So, what's this all mean? Who knows.
