Lensrentals: Sony Is Now A More Popular Rental Brand Than Nikon Increasing 22%, While Canon And Nikon Decreased 8% And 10%


Lensrentals gave FStoppers some insight into their 2017 rental request and the results are quite surprising. Canon is still the number one system by far, followed by… Sony, which has surpassed Nikon. Specifically:

“Sony is now a more popular rental brand than Nikon.”

“Canon lenses were far and away the most popular, taking up 9 of the top 10 spots, with the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM coming in at 5th”

“Sigma continues to gain ground, having become 20 percent more popular than in 2016. Fuji lenses skyrocketed, showing 96 percent more rentals. Sony lenses also increased 22 percent, while Canon and Nikon decreased 8 and 10 percent, respectively.

“Nonetheless, Canon remains the most popular system at 37 percent, with the Sony E mount coming in second at 13 percent.”

This data lends some validity to Sony’s claims of surpassing Nikon to become the number two interchangeable camera company in the world as Canon and Nikon are starting to lose steam. With Fujifilm and Sony going after Canon and Nikon hard the two aren’t going to be able to hang onto their supremacy for much longer.
