From what I have seen in the fields or on TV, all those professionals using either Canon or Nikon (more Canon about 2:1 ratio to Nikon). How many of those PJs using mirrorless or non Canon/Nikon at sides of NFL, Olympics Game, WorldCup, White House / Capitol Hill newsrooms?

Why? 1DX/D4 get the most demanding jobs done, D800E/5DIII get other jobs done. Anything Sony or other companies or mirrorless in general can do, Canon/Nikon DSLRs can't? But not in reverse way or at least not performing at the same level.
