The list of Japan's 10 best-selling mirrorless cameras of 2022, from January through June, has just been published by market data number cruncher BCN Retail.  

Canon being at the top of the sales charts isn't really a huge surprise. It is, after all, the biggest camera manufacturer in the industry, with a stranglehold that stretches across DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, compacts, PTZ cameras… if it's got a camera in it, and it's not a phone, chances are Canon sells it (and lots of it).
