Do I Need Magnesium Body

4 of my cameras have magnesium or metal alloy body. They are nice and feel rudged and balance, and look cool, and for rough working environment maybe metal is needed. But the metal body is heavy.

Sometimes I wonder. Do I really need metal alloy body on my camera?
Maybe I missed something.

What about you, what do you get from metal body on camera?
And what do you miss if it's not metal?
