"Glass is more important that the body that it is on."
Translation and explaination: The lens is the most important item of gear in photography. It is more important than the camera you attach it to. This was fairly true in the film age, when a camera was pretty much just a light-tight box with a hole in it that you attached a shutter to and the image capture device was a piece of film, but these days the image capture device is usually a digital sensor. Back then, the quality of the lens was pretty much the only seriously considered technical factor that limited how well your photos could come out. With digital cameras, the sensor, which is part of the camera body, is also very important. The lens is still very important, but this statement is less true today than it used to be, because the lens is no longer the only quality-limiting factor related to gear. An Ansco 1.2mp camera with a Noctilux lens on it is going to shoot photos that look like crap even with the very expensive lens. The statement is thus only true for digital cameras if it is assumed that the body meets a minimum standard.
