Of course. Photography is not about gear, it is about photography. Your clients couldn't care less about what camera you are using or how it is battered on this forum or if it has oil spot issues or not as long as they are happy with the images you are taking.

That's not true. If you are going to shoot for some sports photo host, like MaxPreps, they expect a certain level of equipment. Of course if you are going to shoot sports, you would not be using a 70-300 f4.5-5.6, or even a 300mm f4.

You're taking it out of context. Of course, you need the right tools for the job. But I think the essence of this thread is whether most of us hobbyists are limited by gear or by ability. I lump myself in with those who have access to good gear, and spend a disproportionate amount of time worrying about sharpness, noise, blah blah blah, when we should instead try to challenge ourselves artistically. Unfortunately for me, it is more fun to read spec sheets and rumours than the history of photography. But if I want to grow as an artist, I need to look past the gear.

It's much easier to buy the treadmill than to actually use it.
