At least I was not talking about candids and showing picture of my kid as you did with your daughter.
You seem to be confusing "candid photos" with "candid photos of strangers."
And I was not showing anything superior, just true candids, they are not staged portraits as you posted.
Since this thread is a general discussion of 4/3 cameras, displaying a high ISO shot under street lighting conditions does an excellent job of demonstrating the camera's capability. The image contributed far more to this thread than any of your posts so far.
All I was trying to say here, if you think you somehow less noticible with small camera while you looking at it to take candids it is nothing but illusion. Doesn't matter which camera format is in use.
The experience of many others shows that you are incorrect. I've never been heckled as paparazzi while using a camera phone, a point and shoot, a micro 4/3 or even a big 645 film camera. But even in a city like Washington DC where DSLR-toting tourists are everywhere you look, pulling out a DSLR gets attention from people that other style cameras simply do not. It's not a matter of whether or not they notice the camera, because the one correct statement you've made in thread is that a camera is always noticeable. It is the reaction of the people when they see the camera, and the reaction to a DSLR is different than the reaction to other styles of hardware.
Using your picture as an example, sure it's obvious who is taking the picture. But it is equally obvious that nobody else seems to care, and that's the difference between a DSLR and something smaller.
I have nothing against 4/3 format.
Which is good, because you don't really seem to know enough about it to have formed a valid opinion.
