No, it suggest that the DP did a great/spectacular/beautiful job with the tools they had. The war is over, Alexa look its the Alexa look, Red has its look, even freaking Sony still have that weird video look a lot of people like. Some DP's will preffer working with a tool, and it will also change as in what the project needs. So no, what he's saying is true. For that price you can get a great more complete package (Hell even the Scarlet Dragon) of accesories and lenses for a tool that will also shoot a high dynamic range image with a great raw codec.
