Those are the camera market shares for the year 2018 in Japan

The image on top shows the full power of the Canon machinery. With their new M50 and EOS-R cameras they made a +10% jump on the Japanese market. Sony had a small increase of 2% and is no getting closer to the second place.

I bet in 2019 those shares will change dramatically with new Canon Nikon and Sony mirrorless cameras being released one after another.

Below you can find the shares in the fixed lens camera market:

The chinese adapter brand Techart is working on a new Sony E-mount to Nikon Z adapter. With that one you should be able to use Sony E-mount lenses on Nikon Z cameras with aperture control and autotofocus. Of course autotofus performance should be very poor but still it’s quite a neat thing.
