    Interesting review. I found it helpful. What is most interesting is that Nikon has as much presence as shown. This is certainly due to the excellent bodies they have been producing in recent years.

    Actually, looking at the chart again, I am pretty curtain over 80% of the images were taken with Canon

    I was surprised so many were taken with Canon as well. I remember in 2007/2008 everyone couldn't sell their Canon equipment fast enough. Guess they rebounded.

    Also this data kinda confirms what I always thought. For the settings I say, "Yeah, I can see that setting".

    Reuters is a canon house. Different media outlets would have different results. And a 6 year old Sony point and shoot having as much presence with photojournalists as a Nikon D3, D3s, D4 etc proves how flawed the sampling is, at least with respects to brands.

    Yeah. When DOF and light aren't an issue. A P&S performs very good and is lower profile than a D4 with a 24-70.

    If your a gear head or looking to sell camera equipment this might be of interest but I find it pointless. With a title like "The cameras and seetings that captured the year's best photos" I was hoping for EXIF data on each shot.

    For a photographer at any level that would be far more usefull!

    I doubt Leica's professional service is comparable to Canon or Nikon... their world wide network surely can't match those giants..

    Leica is essentially a boutique brand nowadays
