Is the .CANON new gTLD finally here?

The .CANON new gTLD was delegated in february 2015 and was one of the first dotBrand extensions to have been announced, long prior to the first round of the ICANN new gTLD program to begin.
In 3 years, its number of registrations stagnated but recently 11 more domain names were created and it appears than more are coming: the .CANON new gTLD has grown from 18 to 29 new ".canon" domains created in March 2018. Some of these registrations are:
  • https://us.medical.canon/
  • http://machinery.canon/en/
  • https://etd.canon/eng/
  • http://compo.canon/en/
  • http://miyazaki.canon/
  • http://global.canon/ja/
  • https://myid.canon/canonid/#/login
  • ...
More numbers
Canon is a major camera manufacturer but other camera trademarks have acquired their personalized domain name extension:
  • The .NIKON new gTLD had 1 domain name registered in March 2018;
  • The .PANASONIC had 2;
  • The .YODOBASHI has 1;
  • The .PANASONIC had 2;
  • The .SONY had 9;
  • The .OLYMPUS application was withdrawn.
The new gTLD report related to photography is updated at the end of April, let's see if Canon registers more domains.
