Sort of, yes.

No one is going to rise to the top in photography based solely on their equipment. You could just as easily come at it from the other side and link something like a flckr gallery from a pro camera model - they vast majority of the photos would range from OK down to awful, with probably less than 5% being really original or exciting.

Gear without vision is wasted.

There are areas where well-chosen gear can make the work easier, and even a few like sports action where high-end gear is a necessity for a professional, but most photographers could do their work wiht modest gear. Many on these forums don't like to hear it, but in most areas of photography creativity, talent, ingenuity and just plain hard work are much more important than fancy gear.
