The motivation for getting a high cost camera and it equally high cost lenses is often driven by customer demand. Art directors can be pretty demanding and if he is bringing high end projects to the studio, the value added is well worth the cost. Keeping the lower cost competition out of the running is probably more important a factor than absolute IQ. Even with $50k cameras, commercial photography is still one of the cheapest entry cost businesses you can get into. Any neighborhood cafe has much more invested in the hardware than a studio.
The job of a studio is to appeal to a clients whims, not produce a great photo, although as a byproduct of appealing to the client's taste sometimes produces a compelling image.
