Last wedding I was at, there were 3 professional photographers hired (2 actually taking photos, the 3rd one shooting the video).
Of course when I got there, I saluted them. The main photographer was using a D700/18-70 combo, the auxiliary was using a 1Ds2/24-70 and a 400D/70-200 2.8 IS. The videographer was using a Sony camera (and he told me he also owned a 5D2/24-105 combo).
I took my 1000D and my 24-105 and 70-300.
Funny thing is that when I said hello, they looked down to see what gear I had. :P
They were super cool with me! We even helped each other in some situations and we spent a great time talking about photography in general.
Same thing happened last Sunday. I was at a place where there were quite a few pro photographers. When I arrived at the scene, they all started looking at my gear - 50D/24-105/580EX + 1000D/17-40/430EX2. People tend to assert the "pedigree" of a photographer by his/her gear!
Well... it isn't that unfair! How likely is a 1D4/70-200 2.8 IS II owner to be a pure amateur?
I don't cover logos. Used to do that on my 1000D: I had the "1000D" logo covered up. I did that because I didn't want to put up with "entry-level a**holes" who arrogantly thought they were "better" than I just because they had a 600D (with a kit lens) and didn't even bother to notice the "red ring of gLory".
Now I don't bother anymore. I take both cameras with me.
