Jacques, what about just putting some scotch tape on the EVF sensor? That would keep it on all the time when the camera is on?

Yep, that seems to be the best solution for that part of the equation. Not very elegant though, and a battery drain if you do not switch off between shots. Fundamentally, the N7's design requires that buyers use thin rim glasses or contact lenses and have low expectations on quality of vision on bright days. I am an old SLR and RF user. I guess I am a bit too stubborn to change my ways, so I keep going back to my old film bodies or my recently acquired D800. Especially on sunny days.
