My point is that "pro" (or "pro-level" or "pro-targeted") is a characteristic of the camera and not the person using it. The user doesn't determine whether a camera is a "pro camera" any more than the camera determines whether the user is a pro. I think that we would all agree that a 1DX is a "pro camera",
I get your point; however, the reason I disagree with your conclusion is that there's no objective criteria to separate pro from non-pro. At the extremes, e.g. 1DX vs Rebel, we will probably agree. But what about in the middle?
In the end, it devolves into the famous Potter Stewart test.
Which camera would a professional choose today:
EOS-1D or Rebel T5i
