I am really in two minds about this...

For architecture and in general telezoom shots it is v. handy to have a built in EVF, but for close range, people shooting it's a no no, if you want to shoot stealthily.

As soon as you bring the camera to your eye, people feel targeted.

So in a way the EVF has become an accessory way of shooting, or one for those who cannot give it up.

IBIS also makes it easy to shoot with an LCD, without special precautions, so to me the Pen is almost quintessential. Keep in mind that having a built in EVF would probably mean saying good bye to pocketability, so there is a tradeoff.

At any rate having a RF alternative at m4/3 would stop defections towards Fuji and Sony so it might be a good thing. It takes a lot of waiting though...
