i think NO one know Where is the right place & whenis the right time to take the "important" photo .......
2, depends on how u phrase it
- in terms of worth and ownership, photo is always more important as that is the outcome.
- in terms of what u can afford to lose, 1 photo or 1 camera - of cos, photo. camera still can shoot many more photos. that is unless the photo cost and can sell more than the camera.
3. mostly yes, but no duckling in the egg kind of stuff.
it depend on the "value" of the photo. Most (or probably all) of the time (for me) the value of the camera is still higher than that of the photo.
if you are saying taking photo in a wet or harsh environment, I will still attempt to do it with the necessary protection for the camera. Sometimes, an umbrella might do.

Wiping mud off my D700 and 24-70 now. Also just washed my camera bag with pressure spray to get rid of all the mud. Jeans and shoes also muddy.
Another year or two later, the D700 will be outdated and sold off at an expected depreciation.
The photos it made would still generate interest, income, sales and marketing opportunities for the photographer for several more years, maybe infinite. For the private client, it could mean generations of record and fond memories of love and family, for the commercial client, it could mean better brand identity, exposure and profits.
For the people who baby their cameras in a bed of soft feathers, they sell off their mint-condition camera years later and get back some money. Maybe they made some photos. They upgrade their camera and the process repeats.

Photo taken is important, camera is not
Photo not taken, camera is important
i once read from the internet this:
Writer: Wow... Bruce your photograph is brilliant, what camera did you use?
Photographer: Thanks James, likewise your novel is fantastic, what typewriter did you use?
comparing camera to photo, i felt IMHO the photo is the important one, the camera is just a tool to produce a result i.e. photo
I think the photographer is the most important the camera cannot operate on its own. And you can't take photo without a camera. So in conclusion, photographer > camera > photo
Cheap lenses are not good AND Good lenses are not cheap!
Camera not important.
Photo even more not important!
Know how to feel more important!!
