There is no way you can use the EVF for 'focusing'. Once the diopter corrector is adjusted the EVF gives a good view to compose the shot and to check any program. Thats all. If the small green box indicates focus and it was locked properly on a good contrasty edge it's focused. Well, most of the time. I wear trifocals and although wish for a much better EVF it does work as intended.

If time permits the LCD with magnified focus screen on manual setting could be useful but personally I can't get excited about that feature.

You can use the focus magnification in the EVF, and since it's in the center, you can use it for focusing, manual or automatic. I've done it and it works.

Sure it can work in a "small" way.  My eyes just don't care for it.
