"Pro's" will most likely be extinct in 10 years. At least for still photojournalism.

That might be true but for things like product photography, weddings and portraits, I think they will still exist. Most "wanna'bes" don't have a grasp on lighting etc enough to duplicate the pros results. For sports, when there were only manual cameras, it took a lot of skill to get a great action shot with a manual focus 300mm f2.8 on slide film. The modern AF systems are so good and the DR is so wide now, this isn't a requirement anymore.

You seem to be dismissing the fact that it takes a pass to get on the field where you can take meaningful photos at college and pro sports events.

The above scenarios are why pros might be using med format digital in the future. And having a "large camera" does impress clients no less today than an RB67 did 10 years ago. People think "I don't have a camera -that- good". Sometimes size does matter
