I see a lot of new photographers wanting to buy the latest and greatest but if your starting out do you think a top of the line camera is going to give you great images?

I started thinking about this as i found a DVD of old images from 2003 taken with a Canon 10D and 28-135mm lens. The 10D was a whopping 6Mp. Less than every single camera phone on the market today

Given limited budget would you be better off investing in a past generation body and spend the remaining dollars of the best lenses possible?

BTW I have printed these up as 8x12" and they look pretty good still!

I've my 10d for sentimental reasons since it was my first DSLR.  These days I'm shooting with a 1DX, 1D4, and occasionally a 7D but I've occasionally pondered taking out the 10d and shooting with it for an afternoon, just to remember what that first camera was like.   It brought me lots of nice images and good memories.
