Interesting survey and very interesting results. I have just one comment: Canon and Nikon have star billing in the questions but there is no mention of Fuji. I suspect (and it would have been good to have confirmation) that Fuji X-System cameras are popular among Leica owners. The result could have been surprising.

I agree 100%. I've always thought of the Fuji X-Series as the "poor man's Leica" - probably not a fair statement to either company but I think Fuji should be elevated to a name brand like Nikon / Canon for this survey.

 

Great survey, btw. Good response sample from the community.

I am a serious photographer .. I sell prints to help pay for my equipment.  I use a Leica X Vario and a Sony A7r with the Zeiss lenses.  The prints from the 16 meg XV rival those from the 36 meg A7R.

I use my Leica M9 mainly for fun fashion shoots for a more vintage look. It also tends to make me shoot more in landscape mode. If I want to shoot faster on a fun fashion shoot I will use my Fuji Xpro1 which I find to be very competitive with the Leica M9 and much easier to get in focus images with.  For work ( I am a portfolio photographer for models and actors) I use Nikon D800 and D3s cameras. I also on rare occasion shoot Hasselblad 500c and Nikon F100 film cameras for fun.

Good point. Next time I'll include Fuji, Sony and Olympus as dedicated Mirrorless options.
