The OP question is about who uses the system and how (what sort of images are they making with the system). Its a guideline for those who are considering the systems.
I've only recently purchased the SQ-A system, and find it to now be my 1st camera of choice when heading out the door.

I went to a WPPA national workshop in NV once. Had lunch with a wedding pro, and after mentioning that I shot with Bronica he mentioned that all the wedding pros in his area (of FL) used Bronica, rather than spending all of their money on capital equipment purchases (Hassy)

I wanted an Hasselblad - and for obvious (money) reasons could not get a good used one. I'd considered Bronica, Mamiya, and Pentax (67II), and two factors influenced my final decision.
1) In my price range
2) Meets my basic needs (not desires)
One need was removable backs, so that ruled out the Pentax. While I still kept my eye on Hasselblad, I started leaning toward Bronica GS-1 because it offered what I wanted and because of the weight. Then a good deal appeared on ebay - so now I have one.
I learned Bronica was quite a workhorse for weddings. I'd never learned of any notable pros who used it, but never even cared to look for that kind of information.
I understand the OP was just curious, no problem with that... and I still want an Hasselblad
Point taken. Although I'm still curious.
