I was reading a thread on the Leica forum stating that gear doesn't matter.

Go repeat Ansel Adams with a point and shoot and let me know how the gear does not matter.

You don't have to repeat someone else but do your own:

I don't think Photoshop and an iPhone will let you reproduce Ansel.

No one has ever said you can't produce a good photo with an iPhone and Photoshop.

My point was that there is no need to reproduce Ansel. Even with the "best" photographer (whatever that means) with the best equipment, the result won't be the same, and even if it was it would be mean less.

What I was trying to say is that museum pieces, great works, are being produced now a days by any number of different cameras. Gear, as a general definition quantized in term of technicalities, doesn't really matter. What matter is the individual relationship artist <-> equipment and that is the reason why so many different opinions exists.
