So, after all the answers you have got to your inquiry, what is the conclusion you can draw from these answers ? Did they correspond to what you were expecting ? Any surprises ?  Can you summarize that in a few numbers ? Your question was interesting, the results would be even more interesting   Now that so many people cared to answer.

Too bad dpreview doesn't have a poll function; it would have been a lot easier to summarize the results.

Based on the replies, it seems like my initial impression was right: a majority of M4/3 users came from D-SLR backgrounds, rather than than "upgrading" from small sensor DCs. And for a significant portion, M4/3 started as a back-up but has performed so well that it's become their primary camera.

On a heartening note, I was glad to see photographers with backgrounds of such wide ranging formats and brands. It was good to know that people see these cameras as an ends to a mean, rather than just an end.

Photography - It's not what you look at that matters; it's what you see.
