If you're serious about your game, your photography game, and you're looking to spend a few bucks to help accomplish that, ignore the marketing hype about every new camera body that comes along on a frequent and regular basis and buy glass-- The best glass you can afford!

Nothing will improve your game, i.e., beyond learning more and practicing as much as you can, like... Want to learn more? CLICK HERE

You speak the truth sir ... and many of us who have been around photography for most of our lives can attest to your teachings. Great glass + Great experience = Great photography

Thanks for the great reminder.

Hmm I thought for sure that buying a top of the line camera meant I could automatically become an awesome photographer and be considered a professional!

Wow, now I don't feel like such a fool by recommending the same thing!

Hmm. I often wonder if it is the glass or the man behind it. I have been fortunate to own and work with many different camera systems. The pictures taken with simple Minolta glass verses Canon, Vivitar and Nikkor rarely looked different.

I would put more emphasis in the lighting equipment, especially the modifiers. Too many just put up a large diffuse light source and call it done.

Snoots, grids, parabolics, barn doors, flags, cookies, dots and fingers and scrims all need to become a part of our working repertoire again.

Seeing the light and balancing the light will do more for your pictures than "L" verses "Non L" glass.
