The equipment is not the answer. It is the creative force behind the equipment. It is knowing how to capture the image you want and how to create it digitally. No one asks a carpenter what type of hammer he uses. They are only tools. It is knowing everything about your trade and being able to do the deal. You can create anything with the bare necessities - I know I have done that. Don't invest a lot in equipment until you know you are going to be able to afford it. Start small - don't get in over your head!!!
see above answer.
Equipment is so frequently over emphasized in photography. A more expensive camera or lens will not make a better photograph. A photographer needs to feel comfortable with his/her equipment so the making of the photograph is instinctual. It is important to be able to see the world through the lens and intuitively understand the possibilities provided by the equipment and post processing technology. All that said, I am most comfortable using a Canon 5D DSLR with a variety of "L" lenses. I favor the "full frame" sensor on the 5D because of my experience with 35mm film and my intuitive understanding of the field of vision each lens creates on a 35mm film frame. I shoot RAW and use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshot CS3 for post processing. My printer is a Canon iPF5000.

Kit Lens and a 50 mm

I read a review from another photographer, that recommended that you buy the best glass available or the best you could afford. His take on it was that they are always improving cameras, but that the glass for lenses was pretty well established...
After my Digital Rebel broke, (I've had it repaired and use it as my backup camera.) I purchased the Canon 30D.
I have the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS and the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L IS lenses. The lenses are excellent and they were very expensive.
But that should give you an idea of the quality I want to deliver. I expect only the best and want to deliver only the best.
