A few days in the past, Map Digicam, a store primarily based within the coronary heart of Tokyo, launched gross sales figures for brand new and used digicam our bodies for the month of November. A fast look on the prime 10 listing actually raised a number of eyebrows for one important motive: the Canon EOS R was sitting excessive and mighty above its illustrious counterparts, together with the Sony a7R III, the Sony a7 III, the Nikon Z6, and the Nikon Z7

It is honest to say that the Canon EOS R did not precisely set the world alight upon first launch, however because the months have handed, increasingly constructive consumer opinions have began to filter by way of, notably from individuals who’ve truly gone out and acquired the digicam moderately than simply reviewing it for a pair days. Certainly, in an article I wrote final week, a few of the feedback from EOS R customers have been fairly glowing to say the least, as was the video from that article. And the gross sales outcomes from Map Digicam lend assist to that positivity.
