New DSLR Top Sellers: Reality bites Leica M9

Time for a new update of the top selling DSLRs at Amazon. If this is your first visit, be sure to read the introduction first. We start with a different type of a screenshot-teaser...


Reality bites Leica M9
As expected, the initial pre-order feeding frenzy did not last. The Leica M9 kits return to reality, and both of them have dropped in the 80s. Still this is not bad, considering the prices. We will probably see a spike if/when they get released...

CaNiKoN domiNaTiOn
23 out of the 25 kits in the top 25 come from Canon and Nikon. Ouch for diversity! Three of those 23 are 35mm full framers, and despite their prices ranging from $2400 to $3300.

Top 25 vitals
+ Canon vs Nikon: 13-10
+ # of 35mmFF: three
+ # of non-DSLRs: one
+ # of non-CaNiKonS: two
+ # of cameras over $1000: eight
+ # of cameras under $500: three (plus two at exactly $500)
+ # of price upticks vs downticks: 3-2
+ # of unique models in the Top 25: 14
