If given the choice of one camera only, guess what format the real pro would get. It is a laughable logic that because a pro uses a certain compact P&S, that compact P&S is a pro grade. You can substitute "compact P&S" with anything, like iPhone or K-5(s).

Why "one camera only"?

If a professional does just one type of photography, it makes sense to have the ideal camera (plus a back-up) for that type, if one exists. Which may or may not be FF. (It may be MF, for example).

But there are professionals who do more than one different types of photography, and I've seen professionals use more than one type of camera for different aspects of a job.

(And I've seen professionals cover up their cameras in rain when I've just carried on shooting!)
