I got to use an Olympus E-PL1 EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) camera and my wife has really fallen for it. Now she wants one. I have to admit it is a nice "little" camera and I like it too despite a few annoying things.
I'm eagerly awaiting the new Sony EVIL camera though (announcement expected this month) and if the picture quality is there then I might pull the trigger and get her one but I really want to wait for Nikon's EVIL version. Even if it's a COOLPIX.
I really don't like the idea of buying into yet another lens mount (M4/3rds, new Sony mount or a totally new group of Nikon lenses) but after using the M4/3rd lenses I really do like the smaller package. The D700 feels like a big cargo van doing laps around the racetrack while the Olympus feels like a sporty little family sedan.
Anyway I really do see these types of cameras taking over the high-end point&shoot and the low-end DSLR segments. Once faster AF becomes a reality on EVIL cameras then buying a bigger bulkier DSLR and lenses won't seem like a good idea.
Should I be concerned about my EVIL thoughts? What can I do to cleanse these temptations and make myself a better Nikon owner?
