The people who make statements about cameras taking nice photos would probably say the same to Dave.
TL;DR: don't lose sleep over ignorance.
I forgot about him good on you for bringing him up. My XTi would be considered entry level but I shot film for years before going digital. Lots of people I know bought into 7d's and 5d mkii's because they could. I know what I'm doing and use cheaper lenses and run rings around them all day. Just proves the person behind the lens means more than the camera they are using about 99% of the time
