IDK about that. I was shooting Little League Baseball last weekend with a Hasselblad. Nobody paid any attentionto me until all of the sudden one of the Umps walked over and asked, "So, you're shooting with a Hasselblad today, eh?". He also mentioned that "way back when" he worked as a wedding photographer's assistant and loaded plenty of Hasselblad magazines. Since then we've been good buddies... all because of some random gear talk. What's so wrong with that?
