If you really want an OVF for composition (not focusing), you can buy rangefinder viewfinders from Leica or Voigtlander and attach them to the hot shoe on NEX-6, A6000, A7, etc cameras that have the MI shoe. You can also get a cold shoe add-on for older NEX cameras and attach an OVF there.

I may try mounting a rifle scope on mine. See how I fare at street photography!!

Sure, but you'll need to draw in your own frame lines.

Or, how about something like this: http://www.gearjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=935
