How about an EVF shutter?

I remember that we used magnifying glasses and other lenses in the sun to burn wood when we were children. The same can easily happen with any other optics (viewfinder or front lens of a camera). That's not a technical flaw, that's optics!

But that does not make it acceptable. It is up to the camera designers to address this. Nikon higher end cameras have an OVF shutter which is designed to prevent the meter from being affected by light going in via the VF when a remote trigger is used. This could work with EVF too.
