Here’s an example of a little gear and a lot of talent. Alexander Vladimirovich Semenov shot this fan film with very little gear, Canon 550D (+ kit lens 18-55mm + 50mm 1.8) and a friends Nikon D5000 (+ kit lens 18-55mm). Most of the work was done in post; lots of modeling, visual effects, and patience!

Check out the video below for another example of how you should never feel limited by the gear you own (or borrow).
