Same here. I can run around all day with a Spotmatic and a small lens, and no one notices me at all. I was taking some dog snaps at a marina a couple of day ago with my RB to finish off a roll, and some boaters nearby ask each other "who hired the photog?" MF and bigger cameras don't lend themselves to invisibility.
