I don’t know about the premium pricing model, but pros always use lower models as backup. If they really like the camera, they may use it more often. Pros who either can’t afford the top model, or don’t need some of the features, but prefer others, may use the lower model instead.Correct. Only for US markets though. That is how Canon US decided to position the 5D series locally They changed the tune in about a year with intent to capture more of the market with the same product and to justify a premium product pricing model.
Uh, sure. I guess if you want to have that debate, go ahead. Doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, but maybe I just don’t get it.It does make sense in the context of this thread as the initial post discusses pro vs non-pro cameras.
I seem to remember that when the 5D first came out, which is when I first bought it, Apple considered it to be an advanced amateur camera, not a Pro model. I suppose that evolved over the years.
