A rising tide raises all boats.
Agreed, the output is getting better, but it does get tiring to hear(read) people moaning(repeatedly) about how bad canon's sensors are, when the reality is that if that energy was spent learning the craft of photography the so-called short-comings of modern gear becomes moot. I know that, personally, my output depends far more on getting the light right and composing a good scene and then working the file to a final image, than whether or not my 7D is too noisy, or my 100-400 doesn't have the latest and greatest IQ and IS...etc.
When I look at images on this site, Naturescape.net and google+(the three primary photo sites I visit) it's very rare that I think about sensor IQ, I never find myself saying OMG that must have been taken with a sony sensor, or wow that canon sensor sure looks like sh!t. My reaction is based on light, composition and emotion, which is purely a personal thing. I know my opinion is worth nothing, but I truly feel that far too many people get caught up in the technology rather than the art and theory of Photography, which I believe is lost on a lot of people these days.
