Because it's a mirrorless camera : MIRRORLESS. There's no mirror, so technically you can't get an OVF since there's no mirror that will reflect what the lens see

Then how does the MIRRORLESS Fuji Xpro1 (with hybrid EVF/OVF) work?

It uses a rangefinder-style OVF (ie not TTL), which are generally pretty poor in themselves, combined with the output from an EVF. Maybe it's a good compromise
