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.

What does "have my collar felt" mean, in the previous link?

I thought paparazzi ran wild in the UK.  Or do security only harass tourists with entry DSLR's?  Picking on the weak?
