Not sure why this hasn't made it yet to this forum:

http://photorumors.com/2013/04/22/for-10-consecutive-years-canon-has-the-1-spot-for-digital-cameras-with-interchangeable-lenses/#more-42034

Maybe Canon does know what they are doing.

Don't confuse biggest company/most sales with "best".  Unless you consider GM the best cars and Budweiser the "best" beer on the planet (it's actually The Chinese beer, Snow).  Interestingly, in almost all markets, the "best" brands are not the mass appeal brands.  Maybe knowing how to sell the most cameras does not mean knowing how to make or sell the best cameras.

I think we are tied   8)

In fact everyone on this forum is tied for 1st place with 1 vote (except those who live in Chicago where they vote early and vote often and their dead grandmother's can vote too  ;D)

Until we hear about this 70D that's supposedly popping up, like now... it's rather "congratulations to Canon for 4 years of consecutive use of the same amazing sensor first utilized in the 7D, and now featured in the revolutionary EOS-M, never needing a replacement with such overwhelming success of every model sold with the same sensor" :D

The selling’s says how good a product is. My business economics teacher always told us that and he often compared this with Windows and Macintosh :). He also mentioned that the Czechs make the best beer - Don't know if something of the mentioned is true, but I definitely agree with the beer statement :)

kind regards, eL

Maybe Canon does know what they are doing.

Being number one keeps Canon number one due to customer marketing and sheer brute sales force. If more people would shoot Pentex or even Nikon, more people seeing this might wonder "Maybe that's a good camera, too"?

But as it is, around here (northeast Germany) Canon nearly seems to be a monopoly manufacturer, I was on a general club meeting (sports, animal protection, carnival, you name it) this weekend and 99% were using Canon, from Rebel to 1d - and one Nikon. Only people who are more into photography like wildlife photogs seem to even consider another brand.

Just until we compare that with 70 years of Kodachrome  ::)

the best beer is german beer. from private hold breweries.
not some chinese or american piss.

the germans have a very high standard when it comes to ingredients... unlike americans, chinese or chechz.
it´s not only what is allowed to be used but also about the QUALITY what is used.

thought... since 1993 there is a "watered down" beer law in germany for top-fermenting beers, good beers are still strictly brewed after the beer law from 1516.
