Taboo on a camera forum?

OK. I know some can do this. But bet most can't.
Off the tops of your heads (quick - no looking up))
What were the favorite cameras of:
1. Richard Avedon
2. Henri C. Bresson
3. Robert Cappa
4. Ansel Adams
5. Vivian Maier
6. Dorthea Lange
And I bet very few, would know the lenses every one of them used.

The only reason I've posted this, is because how much..once the basics are met... reasonably recognizable images, an ability to record a scene, an ability to use the camera to do so, how much does the brand, the model, or the ease of use (even) really count? I'm not making any judgments, just asking for thoughts. Do the cameras matter so much, or does the vision, the subject matter, the content, the archival value? I see so many who are blinded by brand name or type (or hype). What does it really matter? Sure we want the best we can have, but is it so stringent of a requirement? To have perfection in a camera? or a lens? Thoughts.

Like the Joker said: Why so serious?
