An interesting note about Canon, if you remove the lowend of the DSLR market (Rebels, D3xxx/D5xxx), Canon’s marketshare increases. I imagine the 5D Mark III plays a big part in that, as well as the EOS-1D X.
I imagine that the still available 5D Mark II also played a part in that as it dropped to levels that made it accessible to a whole lot of new people.
The key to interpreting these numbers meaningfully is to look at change in percentage of the market that each of the respective companies had last year. Further, these numbers consider more than just DSLRs except that for Canon it only represents DSLRs.
Does anyone have the percentages for 2010 and 2011 for ILC camera sales?
