This is an interesting (if a bit silly) video comparing a pro lens and cheap body combination, to one of a pro body and cheap lens.

Hahaha, VERY ironic, I was listening to this video while I was reading the post and I thought,

"It wouldn't be the same video would it?"

In fact, I was about to make a post about the same video.

I don't see any links,but I guess you are refering to Kai's video. :) it was funny because there are some Canon fanboys out there dumb enough to believe that their cameras are the best,no matter the lens you attach

The higher end bodies may be faster, have more bells and whistles and be better at high ISO, but the lens is much more important.

I thought this Kai's video your talking about as I had just seen it a few hours earlier, and it was, classic. Yeah they certainly do some good videos with some great humour...
