Interesting how every new camera has to do everything better than the last one for every need. Thus the camera becomes more expensive because it must be have the fastest fps, the largest sensor, the highest resolution, the highest iso, the best ergonomics etc etc.

Maybe camera bodies do not need to be so expensive if they are tailored for the job at hand and like lenses you had more than one body.

As example, I shoot fast paced sports as well as do studio work..

So for the studio I use a tripod, I do not care how the camera feels in my hands, I do not need the most advanced auto focus with the most sensor points, infact I can do without auto focus completly, do not really need auto metering and modes like aperature priority etc because i shoot in manual. I do not need sophisticated computer systems for great jpegs as I shoot raw.

So how about a D800E sensor in any body with a 10 pin connector and none of the other bells and whistles?

Then for sports, a nice dx that is ultra fast etc etc.

We buy lens specificaly for our shooting needs, why not bodies ?
