Canon's worldwide market share greater than Sony, Nikon, and Fuji combined, and market share increased more than 2x Sony... and nobody cares

I'm just curious why no one else is reporting on this, you know,... DPReview, PetaPixel, Fstoppers, etc. Because when Sony has market-specific news , these sites go crazy with their Sony-is-Supreme and Canon-is-doomed tone, yet when the yearly totals are done for the entire world, it is actually Canon that is on top, and has more than 2 times the market share increase than Sony for 2019, that's kinda important, no?

Yet, nothing from DPReview, why is that?

I'm baffled... (ok, I'm really not). I wonder if Engadget will re-write this article where they say Canon will be "fighting for scraps" ... really? sad LOL https://www.engadget.com/2019-05-27...JSUH7txdfOENMbXLfq_OlMt97wXFyZdJ8lfsr8-8yIRc8

I've remarked before on the fact that I see more Nikons than Canons around here, and about half of my photography-enthusiast friends have Nikons. (And one of the ones who has Canon regrets it now, thinking Nikon's colors are better (SMH).)

In my regular surroundings (neighbours, family, etc) it's all phones, the only people to drag ILCs with them are my dad (50 years of Olympus) and me (Canon).

For the macro workshops I attended this summer it's mostly Canon, then Nikon and sometimes a Sony. The Sony shooter was using an A77II+grip, which he said was "The last Sony with enough meat to actually hold on to" and was looking at Nikon in case the A77II broke down.
Out of the cameras less than a quarter were mirrorless, the outlier being the tree-frog work shop: 2 Rs, one RP, one A77II, 2 Z7s, a rebel and a 6D.

It should go without saying, but macro workshops are a niche inside a niche and not representative of the market :)

Canon is doomed! Doomed, I say, is doomed!

There's an underlying truth here, too, which is that despite all headlines to the contrary, DSLRs really aren't dead. We know, for example, that in Japan Sony sells more full-frame mirrorless cameras than both Canon and Nikon (and, in most categories, more mirrorless cameras overall since that's all Sony makes), but Canon's continued dominance of the best DSLR realm enables it to maintain an overall sales advantage over its rival.
And yet, we keep hearing that Canon is going to ditch the 5D and 6D and 7D. Sad.
