It is not just about image quality

Looking at the D5200, and I dont know its pricing, but lets say $1000 with lens, it has IQ that is so very similar to the D3x which a few years ago was being sold for $8000... one can apply the same thinking to those who just bought say Pentax 645 (I was considering one) vs the D800e... Technology is moving so fast right now, that unless a photographer needs the improvements in IQ it seems staying a couple of steps behind the curve works quite well.

Mind that the pro models are not pro just due to their image quality. There are many other aspects of usability apart from the image quality. Using a professional model extends beyond sole image comparison. That goes from reliability to ease of creating final product.
