Real photographers uses Hasselblad FTW.
Anyway, it is good to keep in mind that a photographer is essentially providing a service to his/her clients. A handsomely sized full frame equipment does make the whole service package more attractive. It's a good way to advertise one's service. For professionals it is not just about the photo taking session, it's a business which also requires packaging/advertising and building of customer base.
The person may be suggesting that a professional photographer should do something about brandishing his equipments and making a showy business.

Damn.. I am a fake..
When I do right, no one remembers. When I do wrong, no one ever forgets.
My sister used her 40D for my first day (my wedding was spread over 2 days) and rented a 5DII for 2nd day. Lens was 24-105L for both days.
Result - relatives in general felt that pictures from 40D look nicer when we showed them the 4R photos. These relatives didn't even know what camera my sis was using for either day.
So 40D for wedding photography? Why not?
The guy who told you that does not think, if i pass a 5dm2 to my 2 yr nephew and snaps and a pns and my nephew snaps which would be better? none its the person that matters ( in this case i'm not talking abt age, pls dunnot mis understood...) FF matters but not always in terms of noise control, but it doesn't compose a photo for u:... Why does NG photographers takes nice shots even in the 90's?? because they're skilled... So bro don't take it to heart for what that guy said...
No lah, a real photographer uses a pin-hole camera!
