Do you really see THAT much difference in images?

I read so much about the IQ with this or that camera and lens that I truly wonder if I am just not seeing the same images at times. It has always seemed to me that an image from any decent camera and lens was good in my estimation, disregarding all the highly technical aspects which are brought up in replies. Is there really that much change between images taken with any camera and lens?? How many look forward to seeing a nice picture without critique of some sort. Do all the equations and talk of the sensors, et cetera lead to a better understanding of how to take a good picture, and is it necessary? Just my thoughts this morning and I hope I did not offend any one. No bad thoughts in my mind, just curious.

A better understanding of anything one does makes for a better experience of that thing. Whether a better understanding is worth pursuing has to do with one's interest in that thing. If it's just for fun and personal satisfaction, that's one way to take on that thing. If one has a more ambitious interest in that thing their perspective on that thing will be of another level that the other guy won't be able to appreciate (or appreciates that that perspective doesn't relate to their interests at all, fine and well).

This is what you're running into here, there being such a mix of tastes, experience, and skills. Maybe the audience you seek is elsewhere to be found, this audience being what it is.

Thank you, Bob. But don't you agree that there is only so much in the camera that contributes to the IQ that exposure and composition, etc. are the most important thing? I know that people are different and some are not educated as well in technical matters, but the simplicity of photography is what I seek and am not criticizing anyone.
