Less easy to argue that when you filled the frame with their face with your big long zoom :D

If you're smiling and happy and will talk to people, most won't mind being photographed. If you are appreciative and respectful of what someone is doing why wouldn't they be ok with what You are doing? (unless of course you are trying to photograph the 'bad' side of humanity)

General street photography does not require more than a 50 mm lens and if you have a 35 mm, but if you are as shy as I am, you might as well need something longer, and with your budget you can get.

However I use 50 mm and 35 mm for street, bid lenses drag more attention and could freak some out.

70-300's getting a bit too far out for street photography so anything between 18-200 is good but seeing as you're using standard lenses probs best to get something a bit further as its hard to get in there on the street

28mm, 35mm, or 50mm primes on a Rangefinder. All that big photogear is really not easy to use for street photography. SLRs and big zoom lenses are fun for sports, but not really for candids of strangers.
