Even if they do notice, people would be less likely to react, compared to if you point at them with a gigantic Canon 5D Mark III.

You could capture people and their environment – the lens is wide enough.

Its convenience cannot be overemphasized – a matter of pulling the camera out of your cargo pants pocket when the opportunity presents itself.
