Equipment vs photographer

so your equipment is taking the pictures and not you

Absolutely. Just as a calculator makes the calculations, and not me. I merely tell the equipment what to do -- the more limited the equipment, the less I can do with it and/or the more difficult it is to get what I want done.

Else, as I said in a post further up, I'd just stick with my camera phone. And, to be honest, I've seen more than a few decent pics from camera phones.

For example, my longest lens is 200mm. I can do the same thing as someone with a 400mm lens, but just not as well, and not as conveniently. That doesn't mean that a person who "needs" 400mm should make do with a 200mm lens.
