Amazon worldwide rankings compared.


I thought it would be interesting to compare the worldwide Amazon DSLR sales rankings. Please keep in mind that in every country you have different deals. Amazon is also not very popular in Europe and Japan like it is in US. I will show you the TOP 5 DSLR + the 5 most sold Panasonic and Olympus cameras

If you compare the rankings you can notice that:
1) Only Amazon Japan has a Panasonic/Olympus which is in the TOP 5 (On first place the white GF1+20mm lens)
2) In Germany FourThirds cameras are very popular.
3) Olympus E-PL1 preorders are quite low.

    I see these Amazon stats quoted regularly. Are you sure they are “sale” stats and not just “most viewed” stats?

    Is the T2i really the #2 purchased DSLR in the US when it’s not even shipping yet? (yes, it’s pre-order, but is it still really #5)?

      Hi! Amazon clearly says “Bestsellers”. And they include preorders. Cheers

    No Sony at all. They are really going to have to pull a rabbit out of their hat in 2010.

    I believe what you see there even though are real market numbers, it’s heavily reflected by availability and prices.
    I can’t stand another crying post on the DPREVIEW forums on how impossible it is to get a GH1 in the US.
    Lately we Europeans have been lucky to get a lot of m43 products before almost anyone else, but the problem with that is that we usually get a ~50% price penalty for that.
    The manufacturers would like to thank my pockets…

    Is it a surprise that the E-PL1 preorders are low? Sample photos only started appearing a few days ago. How many people buy this kind of camera without first seeing some output and reading a review or two?

    prices for some m43 cams on amazon are quite high here in germany. that amazon doesn’t sell specific cams doesn’t mean others don’t sell either. so i wouldn’t give to much about their statistics.

    “Amazon is also not very popular in Europe and Japan like it is in US.” Well, it may not be the end-all be-all of internet shopping like in the US, but it is easily the top internet retailer in Japan – and extremely popular for books/DVDs/electronics (though they have stiff competition, and Japanese in general prefer to shop face-to-face and pay through the nose for the assurance of being able to return any faulty merchandise in person).
