Perhaps the cogent questions are "what makes a camera professional quality?" and "what makes a manufacturer call a camera "pro".
The answers may be quite different.
I think there is a lot of professional equipment in other industries that does not have the name pro on it.
If you have to tell customers your product is pro, it ain't.
Professionals know what is pro quality without needing the marketing department tell them so.
None of the professional equipment I use in my non-photography career was ever marked "pro".
Got about 8 million dollars of test equipment in the lab at work..... none of it is marked as "pro"....
