Women/girls keep distracting me when I shoot with RX1R
8 months ago

A while ago I posted my experience about how my RX1R seems to get mistaken as a Leica (usually by males) here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3566053 I've had some other experience lately, coming from females.

They are of the following variety:

-"wow, your camera is completely silent, I love it"

-(saying to her girlfriends) "look at his camera, it's the coolest I've seen around here"

-"check out the sick viewfinder on top" (when I have the external EVF mounted)

-"make sure you send me some pictures you took of me"

-"can I see your camera?"

-"what is that? so cute"

The thing is, I never know how to respond to these comments. Usually I am concentrating hard on creating best images, so I feel like I need to have some polite responses ready next time I get them. Any ideas?
