"A good camera does not make you a better photographer" - this is an obvious truism. However, I contend that good equipment improves your chances to come up with a good capture - at least in my case. When I compare the D700 to my D200, there are a few points that improve my odds for getting a good picture:

The higher dynamic range makes it easier to recapture blown highlights.
The high iso capability permits me to use 1/(2f) instead of 1/(1.5) for minimum shutter speed which improves sharpness when hand holding.
The shallower dof allows me to get better bokeh and focus isolation.
The greater tonal and color ranges produce better and more pleasing colors, even at base iso.
