I'm interesting in finding out the percent of U.S. market share of Canon digital SLRs. The PMA doesn't track stats such as this and I don't know who else would. If nothing else, I would appreciate your educated guess, especially the opinions of those of you who are in the camera retail or wholesale business. I am also interested in how you derived your figures(educated guess, industry player, etc.)

Thanx, NHL. I, too, Googled these pages. While they speak well of the health and future of dSLRs, they don't really specify anything about the current market share of Canon, etc. You and I know that Canon dominates, I just want to be able to point to objective facts that will substantiate that claim. BTW, I really like your TJ shot (as well as the rest of your work). I very much appreciate your input.

The first link claims that Canon has 60% of the DSLR market ...

Bob, that thread goes on to dispute the Canon guy's claims. I would like to get unbiased info that truly reflects marketplace reality.

More data points: http://www.forbes.com/technology/fee....CSM.CMP..html

... also check page 15 onward: http://www.canon.com/ir/results/2004/rslt2004q3e.pdf

-> Tidbit: Lenses are only 15% of sales as compared to actual cameras (69%)

Exactly the kind of data I've been looking for NHL. Very useful. Thank you. The only thing missing is a breakdown of digital cameras as far as SLR v. non-SLR models. But, wow, you've helped me tremendously.
