Pros can work with 10Ds and D70s with no problem.

  • Maybe they can. But they don't. Neither me, nor any other pro that

I'm personally familiar with. Nikon D3 or D3x, Canon 1D Mark III or
1Ds Mark III, or 5D Mark II. People do sometimes keep the older body
as a backup only in case the first one breaks down in the middle of
an assignment. As for the difference in IQ, I can tell you that a
certain wedding photographer that I know was so impressed with 5D
Mark II image quality, that she bought 2 bodies at once - one as main
and one for backup. And sold her older models to people like our OP
for (comparatively) peanuts. Which made them very happy (same as our
OP), because they now can afford a great camera which they - being
amateurs - could or would possibly not afford before.

you know no professional photographer: not even one

see what happens when you make up things in a public forum where you can easily find somebody who knows?

you don't look good now.

LOL

the idea you have about the "professional" world is based on stuff you saw on TV.

it took a split second (to me) to realize that you are a gadget fanatic with no clue
