I haven't, but optical viewfinders are perceived by the market as being valuable, and mirrorless cameras are supposed to be less expensive because there's no optical viewfinder and mirror to add to the manufacturing cost and complexity.

Regardless of how you feel about DSLR vs. mirrorless, are you actually suggesting that the manufacturing costs adn complexity of an electronic screen and it's components should be less than a mirror?

Engineering more electronics into less space will generally be more expensive and much more complex.
