Yes! Some of us are very price sensitive, including myself. I'll guarantee most professionals are very price sensitive also. https://www.payscale.com/research/US/Job=Professional_Photographer/SalaryI am a 77D owner. For beginners like me, the budget is really an issue. Even $100 can be a big difference while making a decision for many people (like me). So, I guess giving a spectrum of price choices (80D, T7i, and 77D) with the same sensor (but having difference processors and other features related to usability) allows to cast a wider net to attract more consumers. But, this is not valid for pros for sure.
