I actually think the opposite will happen, that the development money will be focused on the pro-sumer, that's where the money is for Nikon and Cannon et al, the pro market is tiny by comparison.

The Pro lines may just end up there for marketing value to drag the pro-sumers up the food chain.

This change in the market does bring up the possibility of "pro" sponsorships like Fuji has started doing with people like Jose Villa and others to promote their film. Hey, if 400H is the magic bullet that makes Jose's work great, I want to use it too.

We know better, but it's still a powerful marketing tactic.
