Actually, it's all quite simple.

First, if you're not a professional and a substantial part of your income comes through that, then you didn't need this camera.

Now, if you're a professional and got the camera because you needed it, and if you're worth anything as a professional, you had 5 months time to make money of it. 5 months more time than the competitor who camped out on old gear till now. If you couldn't make use of this advantage because you couldn't ask higher rates than the competition because of the camera, again you didn't need it. Just think of it: Just one gig you got because you had the better gear would have payed the difference.
