I don't see how we can answer this one for you. So much depends on you and him, the nature of your relationship, and many other factors.
I wonder why he told you ? Mostly, we leave the nature of a gift as a surprise for the person receiving it. Maybe he is wondering whether you would be pleased enough to warant the high price tag ( there are much cheaper cameras available, so why is he choosing a particularly expeisive one ? ). If you are such a famous and specialist photographer, you'd already have such a camera. For most of us the fancier gadgets do lots of things we don't want to do and have facilities we never use, so they can be really wasteful.
Why not just have a quiet chat, and mention that you'd be even more happy with a much cheaper and simpler camera, as you can't manage all the fancy tricks of a high-line model, and mention that you'd feel embarrassed because you can't afford to spend so much on him, though you'd like to, and though you know he wouldn't expect you to match the gift, it'd make you feel more uncomfortable. Maybe suggest the pair of you visit a good store and choose a simpler model, together
