Yea yea I know. Photography is never about equipment and i shouldn't be an equipment whore.
But just curious, how many professionals here actually use top of the line pro bodies? And, why ? (is it because of faster AF speeds? or reliability? or even just to "look" pro?)
to me, the definition of being a professional, would be the ability to charge market rates when it comes to photographing assignments. Typically, anything more then $80/hr (for events/weddings shoots) should be considering professional enough.
Personally, I own 2 bodies, one prosumer body and one low end body. Felt that it's really more then enough for most assignments that i take. Of course, i'm not really a professional yet...
