The Sony miracle! The NEX-5 makes it into the top-10 of the most sold system cameras in Japan!


Can you tell me the last time a Sony camera made it into the top 10 of the weekly most sold DSLR (or system) cameras in Japan? I believe it was over one year ago with the Sony A700. Now the Sony NEX-5Sony NEX-5Sony NEX-5 made it it into the top-10….2 times! Yes! On place 5 with the black modle and on place 7 with the white model. Other mirrorless cameras like for example the Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1Panasonic GF1 and Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1Olympus E-PL1 are on place 14 and 18.
