Sony has overtaken Canon as the number one seller of mirrorless cameras in Japan, while OM System (formerly Olympus) continued hold third place ahead of giants such as Nikon and Fujifilm

The results may be somewhat surprising, since Sony hasn’t released a new camera since the Sony A7 IV in October 2021. Both Fujifilm and Canon have had more recent releases, with the Fujifilm X-H2S and the Canon EOS R10 and the Canon EOS R7, although many are dealing with stock shortages.
