3 massive contradictions photographers tell you.
Over the years I consistently see, read and hear so called serious amateur & professional photographers, who communicate these points, which I personally want to put right!
1. “It’s not a better camera that takes the best photos, it is you.” (Yes this can be true to an extent, yet the professionals who say this, use the one of the best cameras around).
2. “Your 50mm on a crop body will have the magnification/reach of an 80mm lens.” (A very common error, it gives you the field of view of an 80mm, NOT the magnification/zoom, it is a crop sensor because it will crop your photograph compared to fullframe sensor / 35mm film).
3. “The camera body is more important than quality glass.” (wrong! The other way about. Invest in quality glass first then upgrade your camera body in time).
This is just my honest humble opinion.
