It would be nice to be able to have a really good camera, and lenses to go with it, but many folks are not able to spend the quite large amounts of money that is needed. Although photos may not be quite up to the standard obtained with expensive gear, you can still get some decent results with gear that cost a lot less. I personally use a Nikon D5200, which did not cost a huge amount. Most of the time I use a Nikon 200 mm lens, and am happy with the results. Every now and then I get a decent photo! I sometimes use a 300 mm lens and also a 2.2 times telephoto lens, but not often. I have been quite pleased with the results I get, and really could not justify, (to my wife!), spending the extra money needed to replace what I have. So to those that are not able to buy the really good gear --- you can get satisfaction from the results you get from using a camera and lenses that cost a lot less.
