What's up with the faked pentaprism on E-M1, A7, X-T1 ???

It gives the designers somewhere to stick the enormous EVF.

Enormous EVF?  Seen an NEX-6 or GX7 lately?

Besides that the EVFs on NEX-6 and like might be pushing the limits, you also have to consider ergonomics when you shoot with lenses that are larger, heavier and you also don't limit self to landscape mode only.

As much as I enjoy using my NEX-6, especially with small native and legacy lenses, portrait mode and using heavier lenses becomes an issue with lens mount and EVF not being aligned.
