Not to pooh-pooh, but the implication is "my shots are as good as yours even though I'm shooting with crap. Still, I don't see a lot of shots taken under challenging conditions. I have some really good shots taken with a 450D, but they are shots with subjects that don't move with pretty light. Even iPhones take great shots under those conditions. I'm not buying a 5D3 or a d800 to shoots sunsets and flowers.
I think you missed the point slightly. This thread is not saying new cameras are not any better (I'm planning on a 5D3 purchase shortly myself). What I took the meaning to be is 'get out and enjoy yourself, improve your technique, and you will get *even more* out of a new more capable camera'.
But as you've laid the gauntlet down, so to speak, take a look at these, shot indoors, in very contrasty but essentially low light, of very fast and random moving fencers. Kit is an EOS3 film camera, with various lenses, including 70-200 f4, 15mm fisheye. Film, if memory serves, was Tri-X. I'm sure I could have done technically better with a high ISO 5D3, but what the heck, I enjoyed it, I'm happy with the results - very challenging, and it stretched me quite a bit to get these.
