    You must be at the right place and at the right time to get the shot

    That statistics is for selling more canon cameras.

    Base on the pie chart, many people may thought that the Sony Alpha owners are not good photographers.

    Luckily I have seen photos taken using Sony Alpha with Carl Zeiss Lens so I know there are good photographers using Sony.

    Actually if you look closer, those are all Full Frame cameras. And very likely those photographers would have been using the same system for years and probably would not migrate due to familiarity and amount of money invested in lens compatible with those lens mounts?

    It is interesting though, despite all the advances made recently to the smaller sensor cameras, it looks like full-frame is still the choice for professional photographers in the field.

    which, if i didn't know better, would make the brilliant guess that High ISO sucks on all the cameras featured.

    Dangerous information.

    I'm waiting for GWC who has a Canon 1D Mark IV with a 16-35mm lens, set it to 1/320, f/2.8, and ISO 200 and claim his/her shot is the best regardless everything else.
    A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.

    Just join most local photography get-togethers. Lots of those there.

    Do note that this is mainly all the data from the Reuters photographers themselves. Which means they used the cameras that are assigned to them by the agency, and NOT NECESSARILY their own. If the news agency has a locker full of 1D Mark IV, well guess what the most "popular" camera will be...

    Only ISO200 can produce good pictures.

    Right question: how come none of the news agencies assign Pentax cameras to staff? ;-)

    Because they don't climb trees to take the one in a million shot.
