Do you really see THAT much difference in images?

All good points!

You have to take a lot of the gearhead chatter with a huge grain of salt. You're probably best off just ignoring it, especially if you can't see better photographs as part of the discussion. A lot of those discussions end up being more a debate club than genuinely meaningful ideas that result in better photos. Just because two or three individuals carry on about something you may not understand does not necessarily mean that the discussion is meaningful.

Which makes all sense; ignoring the discussion will not make you understand it, and if you do not understand it then it can not be meaningful.

OTOH, good glass... always improves a photograph. If you're standing on the edge of a canyon, dreaming of capturing that vision, an ultrawide lens will let you capture that scene in all its glory, whereas a kit zoom that begins at 14mm won't. Same goes for a long telephoto - you don't need them very often, but when you do, nothing else will get the job done.

Same goes for bigger = better. You may not need it all the time, but when you do .. no other camera will replace it.

In that case, the only debate is whether you can come up with the cash to get that lens.

Rather if you need it. Everything else will follow.
