The BCN camera market share rankings (Japan) are out and Canon continues to lead the compact and DSLR & compact categories and has placed 2nd in the mirrorless category.

Point & Shoot Compact Rankings: (2016 marketshare in brackets)

  1. Canon 27.3% (2016: 30.5%)
  2. Nikon 22.1%
  3. Casio 19.3%

Canon is up big year over year in DSLR and mirrorless market share. This coincides with what I've been told the marketshare split in Canada is, apparently they have 72% marketshare in DSLRs and over 50% if you include mirrorless ILC cameras.
