I've had the opposite reaction it seems with TLR's. I've never had a second glance using my Mamiya C330, and nobody has ever asked me about it. Maybe it's just this city, the weirder something is the harder people try to ignore you. With the plastic SLR though I felt I was in the gear game again. Like other SLR/DSLR shooters were checking it out to either scoff at or envy the gear, depending on which lens I had attached.
