Throwing the word "pro" around feels akin to talking about "birds."

What kind of bird or pro?
Portrait? Wedding? Studio: fashion, still life, product, catalog?
Photo Journalist? Fine Art? Scientific? University?
Newspaper Magazine? Editorial? Advertising?

I know two professional photographers
(individuals who earn their keep making photographs)
who have switched from Nikon kits to Olympus mirror-less kits.

One who has switched from Wedding/Event work to travel;
so wants the smaller and lighter and sees no reduction in quality.

And the other - I'm not sure why he switched.
He uses a medium format solution for most of his "Commercial" work;
and mixes formats for Event work.
