That doesn't mean I can't see your point. However, for me a megazoom or an evil camera would both just sit at home where I would theoretically one day actually use them. A dslr - might - get some use, but it's just so inconvenient to bring it most of the places where it would actually be better than my s95 that I haven't bought one because I'm just not sure I would use it almost at all. Whereas I use my s95 at least on a weekly basis.

Once you go to the speed of an SLR, it's hard to go back. It is much bulkier and doesn't fit in your pocket, but the speed and PQ gives you shots you can't get with the S. These days the primary use for my S90 is the static wider angle scene shots when I have a telezoom mounted on the SLR. It's definitely handy that it fits easily into a cargo pocket. But if all you have is an S95/100/smartphone, you're severely limiting yourself.

The EVIL line is basically a compromise for the SLR users who want to carry something smaller. Still delivers much better performance, but doesn't need a carry case.
