Tablets are great for on-the-go 'consumable' data, but I find them to be most annoying when used as cameras. They block the view of anyone unfortunate enough to be standing behind the user.


That can be a problem with someone a massive camera/lens as well and in fact likely worse in many situations.

I don't think so. I'd sooner have someone with a 70-200 f/2.8 in front of me. The tablet held out at arm's length will block a large rectangular area in front of the user, whereas the camera & lens will only block a narrow cylindrical area of view directly in front of the photographer's head.

An obstruction in any shape or form is an obstruction. Being biased against something won't change that.
