I don't buy this. There have been tremendous photos shot in horrendouse lighting that had an emotional impact. The photo could be overexposed or in harsh light, but that emotional impact is still there. I'd say this emotional impact is the most important component in an image. Light alone does not make the image
If you look at the photos posted in this forum, from the Nikon thread to the 5D classic and everything else in between, you will notice some amazing photos, and also lots of crappy ones, regardless of cameras used. You will see some photos taken with the most expensive cameras and lenses that are very nice, while others taken with the same equipment are quite crappy. You will also notice the same on photos taken with relatively cheap cameras. The main difference I have noticed is that good photographers more often than not take great photos, regardless, while crappy photographers (like me ) often take crappy photos. I have also noticed that young photographers with lots of imagination often take some very interesting photos.
