Fact: you probably shouldn’t be carrying around an interchangeable lens camera to shoot street photography. Truthfully, you don’t really need to. What street photographers need to capture candid slices of life are small, inconspicuous cameras. Surely, a photographer can use a big camera and not be caught–but it’s tough to argue that smaller and more low profile cameras don’t naturally get away with more. Further, you don’t often need more than a single lens.
