    For some reason the link was broken, i think it's fixed

    OK FOR SOME reason I tried 10 times to post the exact link but picture items 1-50 all Nikon. HAHA.



    Dominated by one brand: Nikon. I'm not a gearwhore by anymeans, but certainly there has to be one brand other than Nikon in there.. not even a Rebel? Something is wrong with that list. AFAIK, the Rebel outsells every dSLR by leaps and bounds, though every single item on that list is Nikon. EVERY SINGLE ONE- 1 through 50!

    Why is that surprising to you, because you picked the wrong brand? :lol:

    It's surprising to me because we all know Canon is a HUGE player in the dSLR world. I think Amazon's software that determines this stuff is probably off its rocker. There's no way a Rebel isn't in the top 5

    Yes every single one. 1-50. I didn't even KNOW there was 50 Dslrs. I'm sure you can find it if you search on amazon. For some reason the link doesn't come out..

    Here's what TPF puts as a link when i paste the actual link (which isnt this by the way):

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/photo/16265451/ref=pd_ts_pg_1?ie=UTF8&pg=1


    Add this at the end: photo/16265451/ref=pd_ts_pg_1?ie=UTF8&pg=1

    Why, because it agrees with you? :lol:

    Just giving you a hard time of course... your original link didn't work for me but what I saw on Amazon when looking in the DSLR section and selecting 'sort by most popular' was a wide range of brands.

    I can take a screenshot if you don't believe me. I don't know why this website does that to links. It must filter out Amazon's links.

    Not saying I don't believe you, but it Amazon's site is heavily based on cookies and tracks your usage - so it could narrow the results by what's in your past search making it appear different for everyone.

    If you just manually click on Cameras/DSLR's and select the sort from most popular you'll see a more broad listing than what you describe.

    Obviously, you don't have much experience with searching on Amazon.com. What's wrong is your expectation that such a list would be accurate.

    It is hard to understand why one of the giants is so unbelievably inept at data base design, but Amazon.com is absolutely the worst site I've even encountered when it comes to their internal product search. Searches usually fail to list significant items that should have been found. Brand name searches often fail to find items that can be found by entering a model number only or some other portion of its description. Its as if their database entry gnomes fail to enter the items correctly (wrong or missing tags, mis-formated brand names, ...). It is not surprising that their own search to generate a "best selling" list is severely inaccurate. From my personal experience with searching their site I would expect it to be useless.

    All I did was click on an Amazon banner that said "See Amazon's best-selling dSLRs"

    There was no search involved.
