I searched this but want advice based on my comfort level.
I am headed to Sao Paulo in August for the first time. I want some advice from those who live there or have traveled there. I am planning on bring my 5d, 24-70, 70-200, and 17-40 in a low profile urban disguise UD60. I will not dress to be noticed. I am six foot and always told I look like a Marine or a cop. I am not little. I have traveled to cities all around the world without a problem. I have walked alone for days on end in Bangkok, Dublin, Paris, Singapore, Frankfurt, Venice, Munich, Milan, NYC, Chicago, LA, London, etc. I am comfortable traveling and I tend to be pretty street smart and observant. I plan on avoiding very tough areas and plan on only shooting during the day. I do not speak Portuguese, however. I have insurance but I am not eager to find a new 5d and L's since I am happy with what I have.
Sorry for the long set up but I wanted to set the stage of my comfort level. Now my question. Take the 5d, use the L's (including the white one) pay attention and don't worry too much? Or buy a G9 or G10 since the 5d's and L's are looking for trouble and a problem is probable?
Would I find Sao Paulo concerns similar to Bangkok or NYC, or much worse?
