What is the end is the final image. The print, or in some cases the digital file, is what matters. No one cares what cameras you own. No one cares what lenses you own. No one cares what software you use. People only care about the photograph that they're viewing, and whether or not it strikes them in some way.

Many photographers spend a lot of time, money and effort on equipment, but spend almost nothing figuring out how to actually create something great with that equipment. It is far more important to learn how to craft great photographs than to buy some new camera or lens.

Great photographers can create amazing images with any camera, including what most would consider "junk." That's because photographic vision can be applied to any camera. Likewise, poor photographers cannot create anything worthwhile even with the best equipment.

What is important in photography is creating art. Making something meaningful with the tools you have is important. It's never about the tools you use, it's about what you make.
