I'm a enthusiast photographer... not a pro. Probably will never bother to go "pro" or do photography as a primary source of income. I do sell work from time to time, but this is primarily prints to individuals and small businesses.
My day job is accounting and have spent about 12 years (prior to accounting) in the IT and software development fields, managing and desigining IT systems and developing applications (mainly for internal company use, not major applications for the public).
Regarding my gear... I buy cameras more based on function/needs and features and not so much brand. My primary system is Nikon but this is because I have carried over stuff from my previous Nikon systems so it only made sense financially to stick with Nikon. Of course I've reached a point where I look at cameras and brands objectively and will be critical where I feel its warranted -- even of Nikon at times.
In the end, all camera companies bring something to the table and they create competition, which is good for the consumer. The key is to find a system that works for you and use it... don't worry about what other people are using as it doesn't impact your photography... Because at the end of the day, it's about getting the photograph you envisioned and the experience. The camera is just a tool, and people buy different camera brands and models for the same reason people buy different brands and/or types of vehicles -- to fit their needs and wants. But as long as its working for you, it doesn't matter what name is on your camera or lens.
