Yes, it's true, some of us fringe types, (especially people who hang out at DPR) want a lot more than iphone quality. We've made the commitment in dollars and time to make our pics the best they can be.

BFD.

You see, the issue is what we mean by quality.  Quality can mean very, very different things. If what you have in mind is gathering pixels, then amen brother, go out and get 'em.  The technical achievement is amazing. Others may have very different values.

What I'm objecting to is the narrow conceit, and poor advice, that gathering pixels is always (or ever) the overriding objective. That's just not true. There's a lot of interesting phone photography going on, and folks otherwise capturing great images with pretty minimal equipment. Dismissing it is a pretty silly, if you ask me.

Good photography can be done, and is done everyday, on modest budgets.  That's a good thing, and should be encouraged.
