yoshi is on a distinguished road
Sonny's No.1 , so says Sonny.

At the press release for their new models, Alpha 99, the first Full Size DSLR in the past 4 years, and DSC-RX1, the world's first Full Size compact (? - actually huge. much larger than the mirrorless models) digicam, Sonny showed some interesting statistics and here is one.

It is about Sonny's market share of MIRRORLESS cameras in the world 11 major markets measured in (monetary) values.

The first one is the original table.

I made it to a spread sheet table and attached here as the second.
(I wanted to upload them as the attachments here as usual but somehow I could not find the option here , so I upload them as pics.)

When the 11 markets are aggregated, Sonny is the number one brand in the mirrorless segment, so says Sonny, with 41% market share. Simply a fresh surprise to me. (No offense to them is intended.)

They did not show names of other brands, but my guesses are (could be of course wrong);

C=no idea
D=no idea

what are yours?
Regional characteristics are also interesting to see.
