What exact camera and lenses do you own?
I've been fooling with photography for 28 years. The new rebels blow away cameras from 25 years ago. Seriously. Also what are you shooting? My guess is that fr the way you phrase the question, is that you're not sure. It also seems you're focused in what other folks think of your camera. I've foud that photography is a hobby where you can't think about what others think. You're walking around with some obtrusive piece of equipment on your neck. Use your camera and maybe get a lens or two.
600D with kit lens, 85mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4. I'm shooting mostly portraits and soon my fitness clients. Not weddings so I think what I have so far is good enough. It wasn't that I cared about what people think of my camera. I created this thread because it felt like the interwebs looked down on rebel users or maybe it's just the users who keep they camera in automatic mode.
