Their most common reaction is ...

... disbelief.

Firstly that Sony make SLRs - and secondly that anyone would buy anything but Canon or Nikon.

There are also situations where they "hold their manhoods cheap", like when a Canon owner looked approvingly at my 300 mm f/2.8 and asked if it was the (Canon) 100-400 mm. Needles to say, he didn't snub his nose at that lens.

On another occasion I used my 70-200 mm f/2.8, and another Canon owner first thought it was a Canon, but then made the snide remark: "Well, they did a good job - even copying the colour".
