Looking at other posts - pro / semi-pro?
« on: October 13, 2012, 12:16:14 am »
This a comment for this page on the website
Pro / Semi-pro, who really cares about classification, yes?

but I can tell you this. You will find the Nikon / Cannon users on the sidelines at sporting events and Sony users in the stands.

I have yet to meet a professional photographer with a Sony.

The only photographers I met who recommend Sony, have em for sale behind a counter.

That is all

The primary writer over at Luminous Landscape was a vocal Sony guy for a long time. He loved the A900. Only recently did the lack of video cause him to start leaving it in the closet.

Aside from that, I agree that the majority of pro photogs rely on Cankon. That should be of no comfort to them, though. Legacy is a powerful thing when it comes to keeping people in a system. But there was a time when Leica, Zeiss, Voigtlander, Olympus, and Contax were all used dominantly by pros. They are all shadows of their former selves.
If you've got pants on, you're doing alright.
