Canon wants more than 50%

The chariman and CEO of Canon Taiwan (Satoshi Yahata) told yesterday in a press conference that his company had the firm intention to take more than 50% market share for the Taiwan’s digitial SLR market.

Everything points to this being also the same for the worldwide market where Canon no longer wants to be perceived as the follower (Sony had announced a very ambitious policy a year ago at Alpha 100 launch) and they do not intend to let Nikon, Sony, or the others take over the lucrative business.
