This is going off topic, but I think it is important as at least a few responses alluded to it.

Everyone can contribute when it comes to a large number of topics here. Your skill level (or gear) isn't as important as your enthusiasm. If you are here then you clearly like to take photographs and more than likely have some cracking shots you could show others. What I get most from this forum are the pics taken and then posted. Since each person has a different "eye" for a shot, I find my eye improves when seeing what others have done. And you don't need a 1Dx to post something good.
It doesn't matter where you start, it's where you finish. All that counts is the photograph.
