Everyone, they aren't winning or anything like that. This is a very specific claim, starting with the fact it's only about FF bodies, and over a TWO MONTH period. In terms of OVERALL market share, they're still a distant third to Canon and Nikon. PR stunt this is.

D7500 is a solid progressive update for Nikon. But yeah, won't be setting the world on fire. It is at least a year too late for that.

However, D750 and D810 are both overdue updates which should happen this year or early next year. As they're both very excellent cameras that are still top of their class now, then if Nikon pulls off a big update for them then they should have something very special on their hands when they get released.

Yeah, but if all they do is put the Sony 42mp sensor in them instead of the 36mp sensor they have now whoop tee shit!

Keep on saying that.

It doesn't show the number of cameras sold (it shows dollars). It doesnt show brand by brand. It doesn't show compared to APS-C.

Lets say Sony sells 10 FF and 5 APS-C cameras. Nikon sells 1 FF and 500 APS-C. Lets say the profit of one FF is $1 and the profit of the APS-C is $100. 

Reports like these are made for investors and shareholders. The only way to see if they really are a success is in their bank accounts.

But again, I wish Sony well, as long as they start addressing their quality control.

Imo, The original A7/r/s are awesome cameras. So was the Nex and maybe the a6000. A7ii/rii/sii, a6300/6500 suck. And I really hope they don't get comfortable and stop improving just because their competitors are fading away. The need to push on.

Yes, but if you look at the CIPA data for the first two months it is clear that unit growth for MILCs over the two months exceeded revenue growth (all though both grew by a very large percentage). Based on that the number of bodies shipped was even more than what that graph suggests.
