I am not a big fan of Thom Hogan, but I think his recent post is very interesting.

Thom is challenging whether the new photo gear that we purchased last Christmas has made us any better photographer.

I have been seeing a lot of "Should I move to FF?", "difference between f4 and f2.8 lens", "New DF coming" kind of posts in the past month. I really wonder whether the photos taken by those people have improved after spending all those money in new gears and gadgets.

I myself is a D600 user. The D600 was beaten to death with its dust issue and sub-standard AF module. But guess what, I just started to go pro with my D600 and all my clients like my results. I found it a fantastic camera and I can't get the most out of it yet.

To those who has bought new gears last Christmas - is your photography better?

I think the question is addressed differently for different groups of folks. To the guy coming from an iPhone or P&S to any kind of proper DSLR with lenses along with a good editing program(LR for example) the improvement will be significant and the equipment purchase warranted.

Not necessarily. The guy with the cell phone or P&S may in fact fail with a DSLR because he/she might not understand the basic differences. I have seem many complains and questions about "why is this image not sharp" when the only problem was the narrow DOF and not understanding the differences between a cell phone camera and a DSLR regarding DOF. That goes of course also for smaller sensor DSLRs, not necessarily FX.

Correct, I should have stated that as "the improvement *may* be significant".  I was trying to leave a door open where equipment changes/upgrades would truly make a noticeable difference in end product.
