Saw it a long time ago and even then I thought it was very subjective.  It all depends on the particular subject and the medium; I mean I've had photos published that were taken on a Canon s400 but a lot more that were taken on a film or Dslr.

Yes you can help a smaller sensor camera to get near to big sensor results (the good photographer thing), but can you do in consistently and in more interesting lighting situations such that you can make your living from it?  No, I still don't think so.

It's kind of like the mirror lens argument: light to carry, hell to focus because it's f8 and the BIF is motion-blurred or long gone before the shutter gets going.  There is a reason why people use bigger cameras and heavy fast lenses.
