Canon and Nikon still have the extensive, worldwide pro networks supporting their brand—in the case of Nikon over 40 years old—as testament that this poster did not know what he was talking about. Those support networks were designed for the pros and their paying organizations to use the top-of-the-line equipment dominating the market.

Kodak also had the same. Fuji calls their slide film "pro" film.

I'll let the evidence from Canon and Nikon serve as testimony to the credibility of other poster's accuracy as to their read of the pro market being mostly "manual cameras":
