I think they are quite right. For me, gear only matters in a sense of how enjoyable it makes shooting and not on it's technical qualities. I also feel all automatic stuff tends to take away creativity and learning out of the process, which makes it quite boring for my taste.


Agreed, but I don't think there is a "they" as such. Quite a broad spectrum of opinions, from "a true pro takes pics with anything, gear doesn't matter at all" to "gear matters, depending on the purpose" to "the key is in PP" ...

When the Fuji X-Pro1 was released, I took notice and thought: Now, that is an interesting camera! I didn't jump onto the band wagon straigh away, but the concept (quite old actually, aperture, shutter speed - and now ISO) I find quite compelling. If gear didn't matter, I could have chosen a DigitalRebel or whatever, menu driven, scene modes etc. but I find this distracting so I am with you on this one!

Gear matters to me. Within reason!
