Maybe you need a bigger cap to cover the surrounding light.

Your EVF should be a clear sharp  almost 3 d image, but you say it's only when you make pictures towards the sun, is it ok when you turn away?

When I turn away from the sun it's better but the viewfinder is still much too dark.

In the first days after receiving the camera we had overcast light. The viewfinder was perfect to use. Imagine my surprise yesterday when I went out to shoot in the sun and the finder was just dark, dark, dark. I think that the finder doesn't have enough power in bright circumstances.
