I have the same "problem" in bright sunlight. Í also wear glasses. I shoot with my left eye and when the sun is also on the left there is a lot of light entering the viewfinder reflected from my glasses. Not wearing glasses helps but still there is a gap between my eye and the viewfinder so there is light from the side shining on my eye and the viewfinder. Because of this the image in the EVF lookes dark. If I close that gap with my hand the EVF is OK.

This also happens with the settings effect to off. I dont want to do that because the live histogram doesn't show the effect of exposure compensation when this setting is off.
