"consumers" buy the beginner level stuff, "prosumers" the in between (think someone shooting friends weddings and baby showers for some money on the side), and "pros" generally get higher end stuff to compliment their demand for higher quality as well as their experience level/need for certain features.

I'm a Canon guy, but with any brand you get what you pay for.

:edit:
Buzzards beat me to it
Also, some pros will use a prosumer grade camera body with professional lenses and get great stuff. Prosumer equipment these days are very good. Old digital cameras were pretty terrible.

Awesome, thanks for the info. Bought my wife a cannon t3 for xmas... She took it back and upgraded to the t4i ....lol. I dont even know the diff... I did notice the price diff tho... Lol.

Wait until she learns about lenses. Bodies are cheap, quality lenses are upwards or $1500-2000 and then some.

I for one, as a hobbyist, cannot justify ever spending over $1000 on a lens (even though I really want to).

The most expensive lens I ever owned was my Canon 600 F4L. It was a telescope! Literally.
I shot this image of the moon long ago on film with my Canon 1nRS.


Now days I rarely pick up a camera tho.

This is the list of budget lenses I'm working on (2 left):

10-24 f/3.5-4.5G (not yet) $800
16-85 f/3.5-5.6G (check) $600
35 f/1.8G (check) $200
50 f/1.8G (soon) $200
70-300 f/4.5-5.6G (check) $600

Then I'll sell my 5100 for the 7100 and shift funds back to the bike/pickup.

Those are prices brand new btw, I buy a lot of gear refurbished to save $.

10-24? That's not the Canon is it? I have the 10-22 ES-F and I love it. Corners get pretty stretched out tho.

Nope, Nikon DX lens. It will be my last purchase, even after the body. I don't "need" it, I just like creative wide angle shots.

Caught this with my iphone long time ago, one of the best pics I ever took of it I think. The sky in the background and how it reflects off the paint on the truck. I didn't (nor do I know how) edit it at all.

I'm a pro photographer on the side...

I have a Canon 5DMKIII and a 1DMKIII, and all L lenses.

That being said, all I ever shoot my truck with is my iPhone.

Same here. I have a ring flash and was experimenting using it as a main softbox on a stand to get nice round catchlights in her eyes.

With digital cameras being so affordable these days, its easier for people to become hobbists/prosumers and then eventually making jump up to professionals.
The biggest limitation in the old days was film and film processing. Now people can shoot all they want and experiment and learn with no additional costs other than buying a laptop and photoshop.
When I first started as a professional, we shot everything with Hasselblads

It was painful when I sold all my medium format film stuff. Then I gave my old Leica rangefinder to my sister (who is an amazing photographer and still shoots a ton of film) and that was the last film camera I had kicking around.
