No, not really different. In fact I used to use my SLRs in places where it is most certainly a dangerous task to change lenses, even to uncap the lens or spend time looking through the viewerfinder. I had my "sacrificial" bodies and lenses for these situations. But, the real reason I tend to change SLR more often....I can't say for sure.... It's probably because when I use them, I tend to drag more lenses along and shoot subjects that prompt me to change more frequently to get the image I want. But, I'll do that with RF too, so perhaps just a quirk of my personal psychoses
