It means that none of the alleged advantages of mirrorless have even slightly trickled down to this specific group of serious photographers.

And is this supposed to be somehow significant? Really? It's significant that out of 55 photographers world wide, none are using a specific camera type?

Yes. Very.

Your world is a very, very tiny little place, isn't it?

Would it be fair to say that film has gone the way of the Dodo because a person could find a sampling of a handful of photographers who don't use film?

Yes. Very.

You enjoy your blissful ignorance, don't you?

Are you old enough to remember when 35mm cameras first arrived in a big way in the late 1950s, and the pros wouldn't touch them? Did you see how fast they were adopted by pros within the decade?

I invite you to track this particular group of people and come back in five years and report what sort of penetration mirrorless cameras have made in their very, very small niche market.
