I am not a big fan of Thom Hogan, but I think his recent post is very interesting.

Thom is challenging whether the new photo gear that we purchased last Christmas has made us any better photographer.

I have been seeing a lot of "Should I move to FF?", "difference between f4 and f2.8 lens", "New DF coming" kind of posts in the past month. I really wonder whether the photos taken by those people have improved after spending all those money in new gears and gadgets.

I myself is a D600 user. The D600 was beaten to death with its dust issue and sub-standard AF module. But guess what, I just started to go pro with my D600 and all my clients like my results. I found it a fantastic camera and I can't get the most out of it yet.

To those who has bought new gears last Christmas - is your photography better?

Newer equipment does NOT make a photographer better. If properly chosen (and capable in areas where limits were being imposed on the photographer), it removes (or lessens the impact of the) limitations on the photographer. If improperly chosen (meaning the new capabilities were in areas not being pushed), it has NO impact (other than possibly bringing on frustrations when no 'improvement' is seen.

It is rare that a single factor (especially sensor FORMAT as opposed to pixel density or sensitivity) has significant impact.
