I recently was in San Diego.  The EVF was always bright and clear.  I shot in places with LOTS of bright light.  Street scenes, beaches, everything was 100% fine.   I can say without reservation that either:

Your camera is faulty


You have some settings wrong.

What ISO do you have set?

Are your menus visible in the EVF and are they bright and clear?

Hey John,

Let's hope my technique is at fault because that could be corrected easily, but basically under the described condition everything in the viewfinder was dark, the liveview picture, the menu, all symbols, everything. I was shooting at ISO100 and the pictures looked just fine later on..
