There is always this - the only people who bother about whether their camera is 'pro' or not are amateurs. Professionals use whatever gets the job done for them, and for quite a few that is an 'amateur' camera.

What can I say, if you cannot appreciate the difference ... "margaritas ante porcos" comes to mind.

What a silly thing to say. There are cameras made to different requirements to suit different markets. Professionals buy the camera they need to do the job they do, and the camera that they choose depends on the precise nature of the job that they do, which varies from pro to pro. So the last thing they would bother about was whether it had a 'pro' label. The NPS services that come with some of the cameras might well be a factor for them, but that's not available to amateurs, so can hardly be a real factor.

When I say "you", I am not addressing the professionals ...

Some cameras, some lenses, some computers
