Bring reflex hanging from neckstrap aboard airplanes?


noob question, never brought my Pentax K100D Super + kit 18-55mm aboard an airplane...

Do air carriers (I'll be with Air France) generally allow you to bring cameras (it's not a P&S... but it's not a FF either, regarding sizes) hanging from your neck in addition to hand luggage?

I don't know why but I feel uncomfortable with the idea... I fear some security guy is going to tell me I can't bring a camera like that in an airport, or saying something like there are limits to the size of "accessories" (as they call them)
Maybe in the future I'll buy a mirrorless...

Any advice?
Thanks in advance.
