It's not 'natural', it is a cultural response. There is no innate characteristic that gives a person a greater affinity for metal than plastic.

"Natural" or "cultural" is a matter of semantics and not important.

So, your measure for quality is the brand name. That is not a surprise to me.

Derogative and presumptuous. I have no brand loyalty and love Nikon's products as much as those of Canon.

But, you have no information that the 7D is in any way more robust that a D80, all you have is a general impression that Canon's marketing has given you. That is why they are as successful as they are.

Yes, it's all down to marketing... Oh wait no, I used a D80 for a year and went and tried out the 7D and D300 to see how different the feel would be and preferred the build of the latter two over the D80. You know, we buy luxury items because we like them. I don't justify it beyond that.
