you realise that no camera you ever bought made you a better photographer, no non photographer ever looks at your photos and wonders what camera took it, and when you realise you've been kidding yourself for years and actually you just like new toys. Plenty of people never have that epiphany so don't beat yourself up if you don't either, but don't try and kid yourself new stuff ever makes you a better photographer, it just doesn't.

More important than the particular camera is learning how to get the most out of your camera within its performance limits, finding interesting subjects, framing well, and post processing skillfully.
