Stupid question: why would anyone need the external EVF when you can shoot with the built-in monitor?

As others have said, some people like to frame and carefully compose their shots. Even the best LCD's are not good enough for this in harsh lighting. Try framing when you are surrounded by bright refeflective surfaces and facing directly into low sun - impossible. EVF's are not perfect, but much better than LCD for this.

Also, most people over the age of 50 need reading glassses, meaning without them the LCD is often out of focus even in ideal lighting. Donning and doffing glasses whilst shooting on the hoof is a pain. An EVF with dioptre adjustment solves this problem.
