Sony now the market leader? (Looks like it!)

Earlier this year Inside Imaging published financial results from the leading camera brands. The conclusion? Indications are “that Sony has quietly assumed the mantle of market leadership in cameras from long time leader, Canon.” Financially, Nikon is not in the race. They say, “Canon has been the largest and most influential of the camera makers for such a long time now the notion that this may no longer be the case will probably take some time to factor in, but in raw sales terms, and looking at what Sony has going for it and Canon hasn’t in the immediate future, it’s worth considering.”
