The object of the EVF viewfinder is not to see exactly what the eye would see.

The object of the EVF viewfinder is to see what the sensor will reproduce.

To me the whole subject of "it doesn't blind me like broad daylight where the desert meets the ocean near Tangiers as the sun is directly overhead." is el toro poo poo.

What I want to see is what the sensor is going to record.

So, "where the desert meets the ocean near Tangiers as the sun is directly overhead" as it appears dark in the EVF viewfinder, is how you would also like your final image.......dark?  We all know how you like your EVF, but it doesn't have the DR that the sensor has, so it doesn't give you WYSIWYG, sadly.

According to the specsheet of the OLED panel, it does "have" it (about 14 stops). Whether it uses it, is a different matter and probably has a lot to do with sensor read out and the curves used too.
