Note that everything on camera worked perfectly it was incredibly fast and snappy but it felt much more plasticky and cheap compared to old "tanks" it was heavy tho but that was it...

So where was the weight coming from? Heavy plastics?

Am i imagining all of this or is quality of cameras slowly degrading so that companies can save some money on build quality?

Metal is being replaced by new materials, that offer equally good robustness, but are lighter. Not only in cameras, but also cars and aeroplanes, for example.

Or what the hell is going on and why would quality drop

You are wrong, that is all.
