"your photos are only good because of your camera".
"You don't even need that lens".
2 things I've heard over the years.
The rest of the BS I receive is stares because I'm a 17 year old with a 5D Mark III and 24-70 II, and supposedly I don't know anything about photography because I'm too young.

what did you start off with?  I bought my daughter a used xti  and a used 18-55,  but every now and then I'll let her use some of my nice lenses. 

a 9  year old with an slr,  even  an old one  draws  attention...  I imagine at some point I might hand her down my mkiii,  but I really don't see that happening any time soon.

What one needs to know about photography can be written on the back of postage stamp ... but talent is something you either have or you don't.
Sold most of my Canon gear ... here's what's left: EOS 30D (x2), EF 24mm f/2.8, EF Compact-Macro 50mm f/2.5, EF 70-200mm f/4L USM.

That the 7D is bad...

That only noobs shoot APS-C...

That people who shoot APS-C do so because they don't have enough money to shoot FF...

That only FF can deliver good pictures...

What is truth?

The stares are probably jealousy :)

 tilt shift?  I still don't understand tilt shifts,  but maybe I'll borrow one one day and figure out the draw.

I think he's talking about the 85L (narrow depth of field with very blurred background).  But I do take issue with calling it odd-shaped (the 17mm TS-E and 8-15mm take that crown), even if it is a chunky little monster.

Oddly enough, No! She'd just question why I "need" that lens.

I started off with a 60D when it first came out (back in the highly pretentious stage of teenage years) and just an 18-55, but slowly expanded with getting a 10-22 and I think what topped it off was the 580EX II and BG-E9.  Now I just get people complaining how heavy the 5D 3 is.
