Re: Which is more important...

Both the lens and the sensor are important, but things can get messed up by the operator...well, and suddenly, neither carries much weight.  I'll give you a visual.  Lets just say you spend $5K on a superb lens and and superb camera body, but if you are not aware, at least while handholding, you could forceably use slower shutter speed than that particular lens will tolerate (magnification is part of it) and your images will come out consistently blurry.  So, yes, as Chris above mentioned, technique overshadows even the greatest equipment.  Furthermore, you could be technically perfect and your frame aesthetic is top notch, but you can still leave the viewer wishing there was more meat in that photo.
