I already have two articles on buying cameras and lenses on my blog. What beginners should learn to do is take gear out of the equation. If you were in a jam and someone handed you a 10-year-old used 4-megapixel DSLR that shot at 1 frame per second with a kit lens and the auto exposure modes didn't work, could you make a picture, or would you freak out because you don't actually know photography? The equipment doesn't change the principles of photography, but principles aren't sexy enough for beginners.
