I'm guessing Greg hasn't lived in the UK (apologies to you Greg if I'm wrong) because he would understand our point if he had - anyone who shoots in public in the UK whilst touting a large camera system is asking for grief, I've seen a lot of it, and I've seen it end badly. Things aren't quite as awful as they used to be, but they're bad enough that I won't have my shoot or my personal outing disrupted by people who take exception to the size of my camera and what they believe it represents. Luckily, since downscaling, I haven't attracted quite as much negative attention from PCSOs, security guards, paranoid parents etc etc.

And my point is, too, than smaller the camera is, the most "natural" people still. Many of them don't feel comfortable when pointed by a big lens.
