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

right, I knew that, but why do we spend $1000s and get mirror less camera without an OVF

We spend (not necessarily $1000) to get a camera that is less bulky, is highly adaptable, has no mirror, is more digital, and has EVF.

OVF came about in SLRs for TTL experience. You couldn't get ATBROF experience (As To Be Recorded On Film). With digital, you have access to TTS experience (Through The Sensor).
