Stealth has nothing to do with camera shape... nobody out on the street is thinking, wow, that faux-dslr shape is so easy to see but that RF shape is invisible.

Stealth may not be the proper word... Perception maybe should have been used. Often when using a DSLR people seem a bit on edge.. store owners wonder what you are doing, so do security goons, people tend to shy away once you are spotted, etc.

When I have used any small boxy style camera, whether it be a D-Lux 4, GF1 or the X-E2, the perception seems to change from me possibly being a pro, reporter, terrorist, lawyer or some other "type" one needs to wary of to some spare tourist guy with a point and shoot.. and they ignore me.... in a sense that might be considered stealth.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.

So, you really think that people are going to realize the difference between the X-E2 and the X-T1?  Do you think the hump magically makes them see the camera?

With DSLRs, it is mostly the zoom lenses that people are conscious of due to them being huge.
