There is a saying that gear doesn't matter but I guess gear matters for the job you will be performing. For me, it's more relevant as macro and wildlife shots are challenging.  There are a lot of factors which matters in the shoots we do and getting the right gear is always necessary even if its a basic setup. 

I have been a Sony Alpha user since 2016 and this is what my current basic setup looks like -
