Anyone happen to know how much market share Sony has in the camera industry? I've been reading some of the specs on these cameras and I have to say these are impressive. Just wondering how many people are buying Sony's vs Canon or Nikon?
For 2010, this site published the following statement based on worldwide sales:
According to the global IDC numbers for 2010, Canon had a 44.5% global market share versus 29.8% by Nikon and 11.9% by Sony.
The figures are for interchangeable lens cameras.
I love my A77. I am pretty much an amature and hobbiest. Used a Minolta Automatic Film SLR for a while, when DSLR's came out I got and used an A100 (already had couple of lenses and no money so felt I needed to stick with Minolta-Sony brand). Used this for years and got a couple more lenses. Few months ago I got the A77, (still no money for new lenses). I am loving this camera, even though there is a learning curve.
