Your comments confirm my assumptions. I suspect some photographers need the high-priced equipment also simply for status reasons, or to make the right impression on their clients. Just as many of those Leica owners buy their camera more for the name than anything else.

And your comparison is good to keep in mind if I will ever think about a second body.
