I have found that of the few dozen serious photographers I know, it is the amateurs and hobbyists that have the better, more expensive gear. Why? Well, because they are the ones who have more money. The full-time professional photographers I know are not that well-heeled, and therefore need to buy gear based on a "return on investment" basis.
The most successful all-around photographer in my community uses two Fuji digital SLRs. They are over ten years old. He has not seen the need to upgrade to anything better as of yet because he can produce the images he needs to produce with those old Fujis.
The only full-time photographer on the staff of the community's biggest newspaper is shooting a Nikon D200, along with Nikon's more economic lenses. The newspaper's editor-in-chief and publisher uses a Canon Rebel.
One friend of mine is strictly a hobbyist, and owns a Canon 800mm f5.6, a Canon 500mm f4 (the brand new one), and a Canon 300mm f2.8, along with a 1D Mark 4 and a 40D. Another hobbyist friend just bought the new 600mm f4 and a 5D Mark 3. Yet another hobbyist friend has two 1Dx bodies, an 800mm f5.6 IS, a 500mm f4 IS, a 300mm f2.8, a 70-200mm f2.8 IS II, and a 24-105mm f4. Compare that to myself - I earn the lion's share of my living from photography, yet I am getting by on an old decrepit 5Dc, a 50D, a 24-105mm, a 100-400mm, and a 400 f2.8 IS (discontinued version).
So me, the "pro", is getting by with less than $10,000 of equipment, total - while my hobbyist friends have an average of over $25,000 of gear each.
Hobbyists often assume that the high-end gear is what the full-time pros use, but they would be wrong in many cases.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
