Lots of people who good work in many fields become obsessed with the particular kit they use to do their work. it may be that sometimes they couldn't work so well with something else. but that is mostly psychological, like a sportsman's warm up routine which is mental preparation, not physical even if they believe the opposite.

The point of the quote is very clear: creative work comes from within, not from the kit. The absurdity is in thinking that if only you had XYZ gadget, your work would be transformed. Sharper mediocrity remains mediocrity. Better kit allows the photographer to print bigger more conveniently, it does nothing for composition. Less time buying, more time practising...
