Nonsense. Pure, unadulterated non-sense. Readiness to spend money has very little to do with skill level, equipment needs or camera knowledge. Readiness
to spend money is most closely correlated with the ability
to spend money.
Yeah, you are right, but I think you missed the point. It may have just been a poor choice of words, the same point could have been made, better said as: If you don't know the benefits of Full Frame, there is little point in upgrading to full frame.
When people, that I know well, ask me for advise on what cameras to by, the answer I give them does take into account their financial situation. The person I know, that sold his business for $450MM a few years ago (and always wants "the best") gets a different answer than the single mother who's son swims on my son's swim team and just wants better shot of their kid -- even though their skill levels are about same. (I'm tempted to add that the first get an answer that would make borrowing gear from him interesting..)
