The Nikon Z9 is the top selling camera at Yodobashi Camera, but this isn't the only Nikon camera represented in the top 10. Two Nikon APS-C cameras, the Zfc and Z50 make it onto the list. But the big news is that Sony dominates positions 2 through 8 with the FX30, FX 3, A7 R5 and the a74 while Canon only manages to take positions 9 and 10 with the Canon R50 and the Canon R10. One thing is clear, the Japanese public is more interested in APS-C cameras in May.

    The Nikon Z8 will ship on May 25, 2023 two expect the Nikon Z8 sales propel it to first place in June. With Canon getting ready to refresh their pro level cameras, don't expect to see the R5 and R3 back in the top 10 anytime soon, though it is surprising that the R6 II did not make an appearance.
