BCNranking published the top 10 best selling mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras in Japan for the period of January to September October, 2012. Some interesting points:

  • Fujfilm is completely missing from the top 10 list.
  • Canon is already at the #3 spot after they announced their first mirrorless camera in July, 2012.
  • Nikon 1 J1 sales are better then I expected (ranked #6).
  • In January 2012 sales of mirrorless camera made for 52.4% of the total cameras sold in Japan (in September 2012 this number dropped to around 45%):

BCNranking's statistics are based on actual sales numbers from stores in Japan.
