Ok, let's be serious for a second and talk about the most important thing in photography: disclaimer, it's NOT your gear. Ever. Never ever. If a photographer blames its gear, it's a bit like a writer blaming his pencil for his bad results. Yes, with expensive gear you may get clearer, sharper images. BUT, cheaper gear can still get you somewhere.
Take this shot for example. It was the right time of the day, with beautiful light. No one cares about my lens. The fact that it's slow (I can work around that), dark (I have solutions for that too). Every piece of gear has its limits.
This image works. It speaks to me. The back light, the ray of sunshine on the flying duck, the reflection of said duck in the water. It's a good photo. No one cares that my lens is a basic kit lens. I used it to its full potential and created a nice scene with it.
