Great carpenter analogy thanks for posting, I've shared with some friends and they enjoyed it too!

BTW:  I actually bought a custom hammer...  I developed a "trigger finger" due to a lot of hammering while doing some roofing.  The hammer has a tuning fork inside the handle which absorbs the vibration of driving in the nails.  It works great!

GREAT SHOT ASHTON!

"Banger: A real carpenter could have done that with rusty wire and a rock. It’s not about the equipment, it’s about the carpenter." LOL!

Here, Richard.. check this out!  Hammer Blog

I agree with Papa Rotzzi regarding that the skill of the photographer rather than just the camera being used is a critical factor in image quality.  However, I have never seen a professional carpenter shop for his tools at a K-Mart Blue Light Special counter...

Doubtless, a skilled photographer using less than top-line gear will beat the pants off an unskilled photographer using the best gear.  However, if two photographers of equal skills are shooting with top-line equipment and low-level equipment; the photographer using the top-line equipment will usually often produce superior results.  This is most often true when the photographers are stretching the limits of the equipment; by shooting in low light levels or shooting subjects that require superlative auto-focus accuracy and speed; or when shooting with the aim of producing exceptionally large prints...

OTOH, there certainly photographers out there who are "over-gunned" and are shooting with equipment that can produce far better results that their skill level can achieve...

To Robert Ferreira.. we as photographers get kinda wrapped up in the mega-pixel-dynamic-ISO wars, but the camera is just a tool. Your ability to make money using that tool will be based more on your skill as a photographer and less on the labels on the front and back of the camera. Study light, composition, and editing.. the rest will follow in due time. I have never had a client ask me what type of camera I use... I am always hired based on what type of photos I make. Good luck, Sir!

Moving to Canon after my Olympus journey ends. Just ordered my 6D with a 50mm f/1.4 and 85mm f/1.8.
