Only time I've been bothered was once when in transit in Frankfurt, where I had to empty my photo bag entirely after the scanning. I was asked to make a random testshot of the wall and show the image on the LCD to the security officer, so he could verify that the camera actually was a working camera. I also had to pop off both caps on every lens (I think I brought four), so he could peek thru them to see that they were optically intact and not filled with c4 or something.

Don't worry about it. I even flew with an apochromatic refractor telescope (Televue TV-85) about 2 months after 9/11. The security guys gave it the once-over but didn't have any issues with it, and it looks a lot more "dangerous" than a camera. As long as you are within the size/weight guidelines for carryon, you'll be fine.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Has anyone flown with a streetwalker harddrive?

Yes, never a problem. Last month used the Streetwalker Harddrive as my carry-on, and a regular Streetwalker Pro as my "personal item" as it fits under the seat with no problem. Had do pay extra for the SW Harddrive as a carry-on (Spirit) but I knew that before hand.
