Canon has marked its 17th year as the global No. 1 in marketshare for digital interchangeable lens cameras, the company has announced.

Canon’s reign began in 2003 with its EOS 300D DSLR, and 2019 sales figures show the company has maintained the top spot despite a strong challenge from Sony.

Last year Canon announced the full-frame mirrorless EOS RP in March, the EOS 250D DSLR in April, the EOS 90D DSLR in September and the APS-C mirrorless EOS M200 in October.

Meanwhile, the company has announced the development of the EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera, which promises 8K video and in-body image stabilisation.

What’s more, Canon is also developing nine new RF lens models, including the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM, and plans to release them throughout the course of 2020.
