Japanese consumers love the EOS M50

The EOS M50 was the top-selling digital single-lens camera twice in Japan in September 2018.

Why twice? Because the white version of the camera came top of the ranking complied by BCN (formerly Business Computer News), up from 5th the previous month. And the black version of the camera ranked third, up from 7th the previous month. In both cases it was the double zoom kit which sold.

What came second? The EOS 800D, which was also second the previous month.
