I pre-chimp with the EVF on my E-M1, since it pretty much shows me the shot I'm going to get. I also have it set to display the taken shot for a half second after the exposure.

One of the more interesting things to do with an EVF is to set the camera for monochrome, but shoot in RAW+JPEG. This changes the display to black and white, but the RAW file is recorded in color. It can help you see the lighting and composition better, without the distraction of color.
