People that post here, are mostly photo enthusiasts, like you and me. But we are a tiny minority of picture takers.

Yet even here the overwhelming majority shoot with Nikon and Canon.

The vast majority are brand conscious, ...they see [Canon and Nikon] in pro's hands at sports,

Setting aside for the moment that the vast majority do not shoot ICL cameras, there are valid reasons pros use Canon and Nikon and don't use Sony, and it's not because they are dupes.
