I think that Canon/Nikon want pros to also buy their cheap entry-level DSLR for everyday shooting. Same for the bulk/weight of pro lenses... It's a marketing decision!

My local dealer told me that someone told him they put concrete in their high-end products and it makes them feel more solid/expensive.


Concrete... Very funny. Actually, they put spent nuclear fuel rods from Fukishima in the pro DSLRs because it is the only way to dispose of the stuff.
