You’re probably heard about the World Press 2017 Photo Contest. The contest saw 80,408 images made by 5,034 photographers from 125 different countries.
And guess what? The Canon EOS 5D Mark III (click here) is the most used camera among those photojournalists who won a price. The data was broke down by Spanish site Photolari. They also broke down which camera brands where used most. 55.5% of the photographers used a Canon camera, 30.55% a Nikon, 8.3% a Fuji, the rest is Pentax and Leica. Sony is not among the bunch, no one cares to use it for professional assignments (just kidding).
The used cameras are shown below.
My guess is the Canon EOS 5D Mark III will remain a bestseller for long time, despite the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV has been announced and is available. The EOS 5D Mark III is just a great DSLRs, and that’s not going to change soon.
