....As I see it people take better pictures than me because of points 1-4 and the difference can be significant. Sometimes but by no means all of the time people take better pictures because they have a new/better camera but rarely is the improvement on anything like the scale that 1-4 can achieve.  Have I got this right?

Pretty much right on - although I'd also add another, "Being there", ie, at the right location and at the right time, IMHO just as important as skill is, and far more important than the latest tech. When I lived in photogenic Utah my output was much more fulfilling than now, living in the dull, flat midwest.....
