Surprising numbers, and you'd be surprised...

Re: How many PROs use Sony?

Well, if you consider the number who have been using Minolta AF for decades, starting back when Nikon's AF strategy was, well, a little "confused"...

And continuing to when Minolta brought out the 9000, a monster with the fastest drive speed, top shutter speed, and top sync speed on the pro market...

And those who shot portrait with the 135mm SF, arguably the most interesting "controlled bokeh" and "soft focus" portrait tele (using an apodizing disc instead of the Nikon and Canon approach of manipulating SA)...

A quite surprising number.

Any Pulitzers shot with a Sony?

They've got both the Minolta and Konica heritage. Four Pulitzers just with the X370, that's just one Minolta model, even before the Maxxum, and a few for the Konica Hexar. Now, the Autoreflex-T, that's something that probably should remain buried. With a cross nailed to the inside of the coffin lid, to keep it from rising again...

Gosh, Nikon must be terrified!

Of course not. But that's not the issue, is it?
