It doesn't matter if you have seven thousand dollars worth of gear, you will notice your camera is not a bottleneck to your photos. Trust my experience. I bought close to three grand in camera gear and went to Alaska. I was walking on a glacier when I realized my mistake. I was wearing jeans. Glaciers are slippery and wet. I was unable to explore as far as I would have liked. If instead of buying more lenses, I got proper water proof gear, I would have had a better experience.
Note: The most important part of your kit.
Note: The DSLR is not as important as a lens in your gear bag.
Note: A good chunk of glass can make an entry level DSLR look pro.
Note: I haven't tested some of this gear yet.
