My main system is 35mm Canon and I would never buy an EVIL that uses EF lenses. It's just crazy, they are too big for that. The lenses have to be max. Leica M size.

You don't buy EF lenses to use on a mirrorless camera. You use your existing EF lenses on a mirrorless camera because you happen to already have those lenses. And even then, you aren't going to do it all the time . For example, I have an Oly E-PM1. But I bought an EF-to-m4/3 adapter for it, and I've been using lenses like my Canon 85/1.8 EF lens and Tamron 28-75/2.8 EF on it. Why? Because I already happen to have those lenses. And because they do the job. And because they produce great results. And because those lenses aren't available for m4/3. And these lenses mounted on my E-PM1 still produce an overall package that is significantly more compact than any of these lenses on my Canon 40D or 60D or 5D.
