    When people say that I don't think it's ever meant with any harm so I wouldn't get hung up over it. I would just say "yeah it's pretty good, thanks".

    Same thing I say.

    I'm only using a 350D, but to non-photographers even that is a huge expensive beast. If they seem interested I might explain to them how much they could really spend on camera equipment, most people (again, non-photographers) will not believe you if you told them you could spend more than $10k for just the back of a camera.

    All the time. It is also a somewhat common topic here. 90% of the time I let it slide. 10% of the time I ask them if they had ever seen Davinci's Mona Lisa... and then comment that he sure must have had some amazing paint and brushes and wink. ;)

    Such a classic comment when people see good photographs you've taken - I get that all the time. I'd love to be able to go over to their house for dinner sometime and say "wow! this is delicious! You must have really good saucepans!"

    That made me smile.

    I tell them yes I do and if you go out right now and spend $5000 on a camera and lens like mine you too will have this good of photographs. Then you can quit your job and take up the awesome life of a photographer.
