My current everyday carry (EDC) is the A7C, Sony 20/2.8 apsc, and a HVL-f28RM flash. Not the best quality, but certainly fast enough and good enough for street shooting and candids for instant printing.

But now I have a problem, I got the GM, and that is literally the ONLY lens with which I want to shoot. It is heavier, and I actually care more about damaging it.

If you are using this set up (or even the 35GM as an EDC) how are you protecting your gear?

I protect all of my equipment equally.

I don't have those lenses, but no matter, I would take the same care as I do with current lenses.

For one thing, I carry an unobtrusive shoulder bag for carrying the camera/lens rather than letting it dangle on a neck strap. (I use a wrist strap)

Also, I use a B+W 007 Clear MRC nano XS-PRO Filter.

Do people notice you more with the larger lens? Is your angst up when using this lens vs being carefree in a way you would when you are shooting with lesser equipment?

I've always preferred smaller lenses so as to not draw attention; I do not consider them "lesser" (personal opinion, of course.)
