    Well, I think most people emphasize skills because with skills and experience one will know what tools they need to achieve a certain goal, instead of asking here what is the next best lens to buy. Not a bad approach really.

    I believe that with the right tools, one can improve their skills faster than if they don't have the right tools, provided they put their heart into learning.

    My view is, if you are going to grab the hammer and nail, then you should learn how to use the hammer and nail the best possibly....if you have a body with a kit lens, then you could utilize it by getting the exposure/composition you want while noticing its limitation. Of course one can improve alot with the right tools, but there are also tons of richie buying great tools without understanding the operation/potential each capable of.
