The thing I has stayed the same is that kids and parents at school and church functions remain intimidated by a DSLR but don't seem to notice or mind my little Olympus XZ1.

I have noticed that pancake or small lenses seem less threatening to people when they see them aimed in their direciton, than large-barrelled lenses do; the size of the camera body fitted behind that, is AFAICT secondary.

I have a Pentax K-5 but with especially the 21mm or the 70mm fitted, the general bulk and impression is still much like that of a bridge camera; which (whether this is justified or not) tends to be deemed less professional or, even, creepy/alarming.
