Does New Technology Mirrorless Resolve Issues of the Older Versions?

Years ago, in 2000 our studio went digital using an Olympus E10 (4mpxl) and the following year an E20 (5mpxl).  We discovered great care was necessary to keep an eye "very" close to the Viewfinder.  It didn't take long during Light table editing to notice uneven exposures.  Many cameras have had the issue of light affecting metering.  But the split prism design of the time had a serious issue with potentially light striking the imager 100% of the time.  It did state in the instruction manual that a rear shutter switch was provided to prevent light stray light from entering the viewfinder.  Light traveled down to affect both the meter and final exposure.  My question is: Do the newer designs prevent light from degrading the image during exposure?
