    Lens. Bodies are the upgradeable bits. A good lens will last you decades.

    FYI, this is a donkey-age-old topic. Just do a search for "Lens or body" and you'll see many similar threads.

    none, as all these are attainable by money.

    those things which money can't buy is more valuable.

    So true, but then those will be "invaluable".

    I value Image Quality, Sharpness, Low Light Capability and Big Aperture.

    Theoretically, I can't use money to buy any of these.

    What's the point here? How will the poll result bear any meaning, message or inspiration to you? Unsure which part of your equipment to put on a silk pillow into a shrine?

    I also value :

    1) Size of XMM eye
    2) Length of XMM eyelashes
    3) How many people will nosebleed over my photos

    Now these, probably can use money to buy..

    of course you can't buy these, but usually when you buy a camera or lenses, than all these will come with it.

    If it is a 350D with a 400mm f2.8 IS II, then the lens
    If is a 1DSMk3 and a 50mm f1.8 then it is the camera body

    Lens for me, cause 2 yrs back it was easily my camera body but it depreciated so much until my lens value caught up from behind

    Well neither really. What's the point in putting value into the tools? Its the experience and memories that matter. No ?
    I probably collect lenses more than I take pictures

    Both are equally important... Really depends what u are using it for, I guess.

    To me, having a ff sensor is important since I am a pixel peeper. I do value my primes as also.w

    agree with catchlight

    but if i were to choose one, i believe it's the lens that "make" the camera, though i believe both factors, including skill and environment make up the 4 factors that constitute a good picture.
