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

Reproducing Ansel Adams was not my point either. My point is this ridiculous statement that gets thrown around that equipment does not matter. There are no professions that require tools when the quality of the equipment does not matter. Of course it matter. Try being a sports or wedding photographer with a cell phone. Of course you can be an artist with a pin hole camera.
