    E.V.I.L. - Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens

    Since there's not an EVIL specific forum or even product forums for such brands as Olympus and Panasonic, I'll just start this thread here. Use it for everything EVIL. Post photos, rumors, gear, etc. The one thing I ask is if you post photos taken with an EVIL camera, please include at least what camera and lens combo it was taken with, since lenses can be interchanged between certain brands and legacy glass is also a big thing with these cameras.

    I've since picked up an Oly 45 f/1.8 and a Lumix 20 f/1.7. I'm currently waiting for Amazon to ship my OM-D.

    I prefer calling them mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras
    M.I.L.C. for short. It sounds a little less evil lol.

    Also added the large grip. Makes for much better handeling.

    Hopefully I'll have photos to share after this weekend. Going to a car show at the beach and leaving the 5D MKII at home.

    It's a shame that their primes aren't weather sealed to go with the OM-D.

    Sometimes I wonder if the OMD is more a brag "we can do this" along with a market tester to see if the market will really pay £1K for a camera of its class. I actually hope that it sells well as whilst it is very expensive it also brings to the field the concept of a professional or at least high class smaller camera.

    So far it is an amazing camera. Next weekend I am off for a bit of a trip and have commented to taking the OMD-EM5 and leaving the d700 at home.

    I got a pen-1 years ago to use as my point and shoot camera, and was happy, then upgraded to the pen-3 for the same reason, but recently bit the bullet for the OMD-EM5.

    On several of the micro 4/3 boards people are starting to post images from this camera and some are fabulous, the ones not so good; let 's just say in the hands of the operator is going to be a huge difference. However, isn't this true about any piece of equipment?

    Thom Hogan, well-known author and photography writer has launched a new website devoted exclusively to mirrorless cameras. EVIL is one name; mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is another name for cameras in this class. Same with compact mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. Basically, the defining qualities of cameras of this particular "type" are 1) interchangeable lenses and 2) NO MIRROR. Hence, the name of Thom Hogan's excellent site,

    The Nex 7 is more expensive. An E-P3 with an electronic viewfinder is nearly the same price and you lose the hotshoe on the E-P3 with the view finder. Not to mention, the OM-D has better dynamic range and ISO performance than the E-P3. I don't see where the price is that outrageous compared to other high end mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras.

    Ahh I was just comparing the base costs of the bodies rather than with expanding (eg with the electronic viewfinder) - plus I'd totally overlooked the sony offerings (thus not even known that the Nex was on the market). Seeing others jumping in at the £1K price boundary seems that I'm behind the times with concern about mirrorless staying strong in that market.

    I got my OMD E-M5 a few weeks ago and I still feel the price point is fine. Its comparable to their Panasonic competitors. My only complaint... I haven't had time to actually shoot with it.

    that

    and Adobe is taking a while to get support for the camera in Lightroom 3. (I use the DNG converter for the time being)

    I've decided to keep my E-PL1....too (had a thread with my review a while ago). So while I don't have anything from the OMD yet... here's a few from the E-PL1 (whatever I happen to u/l online).

    E-PL1 + adapted Tamron 90mm (I posted this one before)

    E-PL1 + Olympus 9-18mm

    E-PL1 + Panasonic 45-200mm

    E-PL1 + Olympus 45mm f/1.8 (literally the first photo after opening the box)

    E-PL1 + Panasonic 45-200mm

    E-PL1 + Panasonic 45-200mm (Not a good photo but I posted this for a friend to show the detail and craftsmanship of the statue itself.. .amazing achievement of human hands.)
