I think this is the nature of EVF's in general. Yesterday I went to photograph the high water at Great Falls Park in Virginia. It was a bright sunny day with the sun at my back. The problem is that with this contrasty scene, it is hard to see detail in the EVF to the point that precise composition is difficult. I confirmed this this morning. I took some pictures of my back garden, again front lit by the morning sun. I was in shadows. Again I had trouble seeing details. However, with my Canon 5D MKIII, no problem. Sean Rein in his review of the X-T1 had the same problem. It makes me wonder whether EVF's will be able to overcome this deficiency, namely that the dynamic range of the eye with an OVF is greater that any EVF.

Put me down as another person who doesn't understand what your problem is composing with the EVF in bright light.

Are you having problems getting a good look at the EVF due to lack of an eye cup, letting light leak between the EVF and your eye? Does it take too long to go from looking at the bright scene directly and then looking into a dimmer EVF?  Are you trying to manually focus?

Please elaborate.
