Hi,

Thanks for posting this. It is not too strange that some would worry about what others wear, including their cameras.

While in Indonesia photographing a construction worker, I got a whisper over my shoulder: "Next time, use a Nikon or a Leica".

On turning I see this guy, wealthy sort, certainly one you'd see with a garland of "L" lenses around his neck. I said nothing to him and went on shooting.

This was the construction worker I mentioned.

Great photo.

I too am a dual system man, having E-3 and some lenses. A great system.

My answer to the chap who made the remark would by a quote from a teacher of mine, about 50 years ago.

"Tisn't the pen at all, tis the fellow behind the pen"
