Just inspected my own EVF. Does not have that halo of haze.

There are two possible causes for that haze. One, something was glued externally, causing its gases to escape under the viewfinder lens. Two, something internally has either popped or been exposed to heat and released such gasses. It could just be water vapour, but it is definitely NOT normal. So get your refund, and if you can, buy from a legit dealer (B&H, Adorama, Sony's own site) even if it costs a little more. The price is down below $250 now, so definitely not as big a bite to buy it at full price from a reputable dealer.

This actually came from Amazon.. and it is going back tomorrow morning..
Is the price drop because of the imminent arrival of the NEX6?

Are you in the UK or US?  Was the EVF actually sold by Amazon itself or by an independent trader using Amazon?  I ask because in my experience Amazon (UK in my case) is one of the few retailers I've always been confident of NOT receiving a customer return from when I purchase an item new, and it would be very disturbing if that changed.
