"Nikon D7000 and a Leica M3"

I am a semi pro (which means I still have a day job), when I go out on a gig my primary rig is a D7000, 16-85 zoom and a Nikon SB-700 flash (I said I was a "semi" pro), but I always bring my trusty M3 also. If I shoot a 1000 exposures (usually more) with the D7000, I get about 150-175 keepers. With the M3 I will shoot about a 100 exposures and get about 30 or so keepers. Nowadays if I only bring the M3 or even a digital of equivalent size, I feel I am not taken seriously. So the D7000 stays. Also when I do shot the M3 during the gig, there is no pressure. People actually lighten up and act more naturally because they think I am just "fooling" around.
