Latest japanese rankings (GF2 rules!)

Mirrorless cameras are very popular in Japan. That’s why you can find the Panasonic GF2 under the three most sold system cameras (last week sales). Source: BCNranking.
You can check Amazon rankings to get a very approximate idea on how it is going in the rest of the world (the stats are not reliable!). And looking at them you can easily understand why Canon has no hurry to join the mirrorless competition:

Canon and Nikon keep domintaing the worold with their low end DSLR. A bit of a wonder why the usually conservative japaneses market is the only one where mirrorless has a huge 40% market share. Need some expert out there that can explain me that :)
