I wonder what the story is from the Olympics?  I see a lot of White lenses there it appears to be more than half but there are quite a few black ones as well.

The Canon/Nikon ratio is about as expected, but it is a bit of a surprise to find Leica ahead of Sony.

Yeah, the T3 is amusing.

Also interesting that combined, the 5Ds outnumber the 1Ds. Looks like "Sin Datos" is crushing it though. Where can I get one of those? :)

Maybe because dynamic range and megapixels don't really matter when you are shooting pictures that will be seen either at 150 LPI or 72 DPI?

Check out this article.  Talks about Getty and AP and what they use.  (AP is entirely Canon, Getty is a mix of Nikon and Canon)

43 cameras is not a large sample size. Also the 13 unknown cameras don't appear in the % chart and therefore skew all the results.
6D, Fuji X-E1

probably part of the reason Canon doesn't care about mirrorless or innovation in general.
