but I'm really just astounded by the lack of photographic ability, either technically or creatively on these forums.

You're assuming all users post their work. And their best work. Neither is happening.

This is forum where people discuss technical aspects of our gear. So, that's exactly what it is used for.

You would think that some of the greatest cameras ever made would result in some really stunning work.

It is, people are making stunning pictures with all kinds of cameras.

the pictures are really just demonstrations of resolution and really not much else.

Not on this forum, since practically no one is posting full sized shots, only web-sized. Difficult to demonstrate resolution of D4 & D800 when you post a 800 pixel wide picture.

It's really frustrating to see so many people with so much money and no ability.

That's what we call 'jealousy'.

People are free to buy anything they want, as long as they can afford it. There's no law requiring them to be best photographers in the world to buy a D4 or D800, just as there is no law requiring you to be as good as Fernando Alonso, if you want to buy a car.
