It's not about the tools, it's about the artist.

I have no doubt that Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci might have made some incredible ballon animals if they had tried.

My word,
this question from the OP looks identical to this one asked about 8 months ago on yahoo

The answer stays the same, equipment does not matter,
it is all the skill and vision of the user.

Surprisingly if you go to his about page on his web site it clearly states
Currently he is using a Leica M8 Digital Rangefinder, Leica M6 Film Rangefinder, a Mamiya RZ67 medium format SLR and a Fujifilm GF670 medium format rangefinder.
And if you look at his images, well, not my cup of tea.

Someone trying to do some promotion for their web site maybe?

Imaging is all about light and your ability to sculpt it.
Equipment is just a secondary nuisance.

most camera/lens combos will produce excellent results at their 'critical aperture' .... expensive equipment merely has a wider 'range' of excellent results and is more durable

eg. taken with $150 equipment and printable 16x20

The OP is a Spammer. A signature promoting a site selling diet and energy products was recently added (so that it would show up in the post made earlier).

We see that sometimes, where spammers will make a post that looks legit, then come back later and add a signature promoting products

I usually delete the threads started at the same time I ban the member when I see that kind of thing. But, this time, since it looks like the subject was of interest to some members, I left the thread after banning the OP.
