The add-on is not required for the operation of the E-P5. Without it, the camera is smaller than the GX7.

The add-on itself (VF4) is a better viewfinder than the one built-in the GX7.

It's still a bulky add-on, and when attached negates any size advantage. If you prefer that, it's fine for you. I prefer the viewfinder to be built-in.

Do you also prefer clip-on light meters to built-in ones?

EVF still take up significant room built-in or as an add-on.

m43 can be shrunk to the size of the GM1 without an EVF.

m43 with EVF is the G6, the EM-10 and the GX7. Quite a difference.

For a format that has portability as one of its main selling points, some trade-offs are necessary. I'm ok with only using an EVF in bright daylight. Otherwise, I can live without it. Different priorities.
