Precision

The main reason machinery industry goes to heavy and strong metal framing is to get dimensional stability independent of most environment variables and time of use. I guess that is valid also for cameras and their precise mechanics.

Probably there is some marketing elements on the decision also.

From my part I would never buy any plastic camera body while I have metal option at a reasonable price. I do not like the plastic feeling and for me Photography is a hobby - the pleasure is in the first place (Freud explains).
