Understand the difference between professional and amateur: A pro can take great images with any camera. The difference is our work demands certain capabilities that entry-level DSLRs don't have. I won't go into the details, but I recommend every beginner starts with the cheapest entry-level DSLR. That way you can put more money into education and experience. When your images and skills demand it, certainly you can upgrade, but there's little point to starting out with more camera just because you think you might outgrow something. The desire to have more camera is part human nature and part a result of marketing from camera manufacturers, but it has about zero percent to do with need for beginners. You won't outgrow it on accident. You'll outgrow it only by learning and mastering fundamentals, which takes a purposeful effort and time and which can be done on an entry-level DSLR. Outgrow, and then upgrade.

A camera or lens can't take good or bad photos any more than a brush and canvas can paint themselves a masterpiece.
