    I got the same results off "B&H Mirrorless" search ... but one could probably reload, just to be safe.

    PS, I wonder if there's money to be made in canceling other people's preorders.

      It's like cereals and supermarkets. The biggest payers get the premium shelves.

      B&H has always been a Canon oriented store when it comes to merchandizing.

        I don't know. But it's not too difficult to believe Canon has the top selling photography models because they don't have much competition.

        I actually said before Sony's a7SIII is in cinema (which it is), but it's now also in this section at #5 (wasn't last year). Probably has split purchases from both, so not sure specific accuracy can be correctly reflected here for that one.

        As far as cinema, both Pockets were best sellers in the cinema cameras section for like 3 years and they cost nickels and dimes. How much money is there to be made in those cases with any premium shelves...not a lot.

          Canon does have a 30% share in Mirrorless. Sony has a 30% share in Mirrorless. B&H Mirroless page looks like the market.*

          * Best Buy Best Seller list tends to be more representative of the overall sales figures. B&H leans more pro.

                FWIW, R5 has 553 reviews/comments. R6 359, A7SIII 213, A1 104, A7RIVA 340, A7c 120, Z fc 22, ZV E-10 11, Z7 II 88, etc.

                I am not sure if they count different packages, i.e., w/ or w/o the lens, differently. For the same model with different colors, they don't. Older models have clearly accumulated more comments.

                    I was goofing off .. but ... if it's a hot model with a limited upfront run, one would have to buy a model at a discount shop such as Abe's of Main and then sell it at above retail on a popular gear site (or, perhaps, eBay). The problem is that the margins are getting slimmer and slimmer. Abe's selling R5, as an example, for $3,700 and they have (imported) units in stock. So, one'd need to have a global shortage of R5's to get somewhere around $4,200 for it. It's not impossible but one needs several factors, including timing, working in his favor. For most people, it's not worth the trouble.

                    PS. In the car market, hot new pieces like Supra, Veloster N, Civic R, C8, Taycan, etc. have sticker prices far above the MAP. The manufacturers frown upon it but the dealers try to find a way to make more on a hot model regardless.

                      If you can believe what you read online I saw a October 27 or 29th date for a GH6 announcement.
