EVIL Camera = Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens aka a mirrorless camera with an electronic viewfinder.

I guess I should clarify too, the club is not just for EVIL cameras...all mirrorless cameras are welcome. Not all mirrorless cameras have an EVF.

As a recent convert from Nikon DSLR's, I think I might just qualify to join this little club . I just picked up an Olympus OM-D EM-5 with the 12-50mm kit lens, and an adapter to use my vintage OM prime lenses. I haven't shot much with it yet, but here are a couple pics I took this weekend.

This is probably a nice camera. It seems to do a decent job on shots to the net. Some of us however actually get our stuff professionally printed and/or manipulate photos and this may or may not fall short in that area. There is no way that the lenses offered for this camera can equal the Limited lenses from Pentax or the Nikanon systems.

From what I've read this is designed to be step up from the smart phone
What an utterly ridiculous statement. Even the micro four thirds systems can compete in quality with prosumer, and even professional full frame dslr's. Just tell pro photographers Scott Bourne, and Steve Huff that mirrorless is just "designed to be a step up from the smart phone". It's absolutely laughable.

From the other day. For some reason, the Tamron 90mm Macro doesn't play well with my NEX-6. I use peaking and things look nice and sharp on the LCD and in the EVF but once I get them on the computer, they are anything but sharp. These are the best two out of about 20 shots I took and I'm not really impressed by either. I know the same lens on my D300 could produce crazy sharp images. I haven't really tried the lens on my D7000 yet. I'll probably be looking for an old legacy macro lens soon.

Thanks for the welcome. What do you think is? Do you think it's the lens, or camera movement? I have a Tamron 70-300mm SP Di VC USD XLD for my now sold Nikon D5100, and the first copy of the lens I got was the same way. It just wasn't sharp at all. The replacement I got for it however was very sharp. I've had issues with Tamron glass in the past as well though. For me, they seem to be hit or miss, but their customer service has always fixed any problems I've had.

Here's a shot from that Tamron 70-300 @300mm 1/1250 f/11.0 ISO500

Not sure, I think that the lens just doesn't peak well with the NEX-6 and since the LCD is small, the shot looks sharp when it's not. It worked fine on my D300. It wasn't camera shake because I was using a tripod and remote shutter release.

Oh, so are you using a Nikon F to E mount lens adapter then? Or did you get another lens specifically for the E mount? I probably read your original post wrong

It's an adapted Nikon mount so it's MF only.
