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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Yes I know that and I don't leave reviews either, but people do, but still 5 reviews is it since it came out seems kind of low.
    Because people have smartened up over the years because of YouTube and no one is buying another recycled camera.

    If the GH5_I came out in 2013 and the GH5_II came out in 2016, it would be a top-seller.

    Not happening in 2021 with a MFT sensor and with what else is available.

    Ouch. On B&H's Mirrorless "best sellers", there are three non Sony, non Canon models - Nikon Z6II, Nikon Z fc and Fuji X-S10 - in Top 25/First page. Granted, B&H isn't everything but it's fairly representative of the serious buyers.

    #1 with the bullet is R3. At $6,000. I think I'd be the first to cancel NorBro's preorder.
    lol, that's funny...such a waste of money, IMO.

    I've had this convo many times on here over the years because people aren't that tech savvy when it comes to navigating front-end development, but currently the top 3 best sellers in B&H's "Mirrorless Cameras" sections are all Canons. (a7SIII isn't part of this group and is located with the cinema cameras.)

    You have to make sure you're in the "Mirrorless Cameras" section and you've refreshed the "Best Sellers" list. IF you're not and you're in some sub-category or you've landed on the page from a search engine, the results will vary depending on your location and/or other circumstances.
