But the sensor is probably most of the cost of a camera.

Yet you are mistaken... it doesn't cost that much to replace a damaged sensor of a camera... and the repair cost is mostly labor since its not an easy job at all.... given the profit from the repair, it's sensible to consider the sensor at around 10% of what a camera costs....

Your posts are full of assertions pulled out of thin air, and this one in particular is hard to believe. Do you have any proof? And bear in mind that we are talking about an FX sensor.
