Getting past this

When I look at these images, I see two cameras capable of taking fine images, with one perhaps taking even finer images than the other. But real photography isn't about the cameras, except in the most extreme situations, it's about the people holding them. If you get lost in trying to obtain the most perfect recording of light, you'll never be able to see that which is truly worth capturing.

Look at the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson. Technically, his work is woefully flawed--many of his shots would yield better image quality had they been shot with an i-phone with a dirty lens. Yet his photographs are priceless wonders. He had good-enough equipment to work with his exceptional photographic sensabilities. May we all be so lucky.

Debating which camera yields better images than another sounds oh so much like adolescent schoolboys comparing whose p#*%s is bigger than whose; and whenever that game is being played, you just know that no matter whose comes out on top, neither will know how to use it well.
