Of course. Photography is not about gear, it is about photography. Your clients couldn't care less about what camera you are using or how it is battered on this forum or if it has oil spot issues or not as long as they are happy with the images you are taking.

That's not true. If you are going to shoot for some sports photo host, like MaxPreps, they expect a certain level of equipment. Of course if you are going to shoot sports, you would not be using a 70-300 f4.5-5.6, or even a 300mm f4.

Don't get me started on maxpreps

i was taking better pictures of girls soccer with my nikon d300 and 70-300 then the local maxpreps guy who was shooting a d3 and 70-200mm

apparently I needed a 600mm lens because I didn't have enough reach, or so I was told

I doubt anyone told you you needed a 600mm lens. I have never seen a 600mm lens at any HS games, nor have I seen Maxpreps shooter using a 70-200mm as his main lens. I don't shoot for maxpreps anymore because I don't shoot for money, I don't like to crop all my photos to 2166x1600, I don't like to crop as tight as they wanted me to crop. My clients are HS athletes and their parents, friends, and relatives, and recruiters, TX Longhorn Illustrated. They get my photos for free. Here is my maxpreps gallery.  It's still there!
