It much worst here in the USA.  I get stopped by mall cops all the time just carrying my tiny canon rebel dslr with a kit lens.  I think people equate DSLR = PAPARAZZI, I was asked to either stop shooting or they'll escort me out of the outdoor mall.

So I bought myself a red Panasonic GF2, went back to the same mall and never got bother again.  They think small + cute + red camera = point/shoot.

Sad by there is hardly any placed you can shoot with a DSLR in a city without making you feel like a criminal.
