Yes. A cropped sensor is one thing, a cropped VF is another, totally different thing. That equation can only be solved with an electronic VF.

And only if the maker of the EVF makes an useful EVF and doesn't only use an up scaled part of the video stream (like the magnified view in manual focus mode on the Nikon 1 cameras).

The idea is very cool. A FX camera that uses an EVF and has the option to show the whole FX frame with crop lines or a "full screen" mode of the cropped frame.

There are so many possibilities with an EVF. If only the camera makers would start to think about their cameras as computers and not as film cameras with a sensor…

Yes, that would be the only usable application of EVF in my opinion. If it would be just a magnified image then it would be just a tiny bit better than the current crop modes of the FX. Like I said, cropping the sensor is one thing, but cropping the VF is another, and the cropped VF images makes the cropped modes of FX cameras pointless and/or difficult in many situations.
