Artistic ability is in you, not the equipement. Remember that Ansel Adams apparently used every camera and enlarger ever made (only a slight exaggeration) while Edward Weston used an old 8x10, an old lens, and contact printed with a light bulb. Both produced exceptional work.

I shoot with 35mm and 6x6. Budget is limited to second-hand equipment but on the better end scale.
