Nikon And Canon To Cease Pro DSLR Production!?

The last few days has witnessed first the announcement of the end of professional photographers followed by the en masse redundancy of an entire photographic staff with yet more like actions likely to follow... So what, oh what, is to become of "professional level" camera equipment and $7,000 top of the line Canon and Nikon DSLR bodies? Why would they continue to pump money into pro level R&D and then build equipment for people that are no longer hired and no longer exist?

And will we soon have pro-level iPhones for "professional" unpaid citizen journalists, and low budget consumer models for the great unwashed?
