Hi Sonyshine,

If you read through this thread you will find that there are a quite a number of people who say that to them the EVF is dim in bright light. So these so called dim, contrasty EVF's are right here in this thread. 

It is interesting that other people like you don't have the impression of a dim viewfinder at all! I believe like Domenick that the difference of opinion mainly comes from the different level of tolerance to the brightness of the viewfinder.

By the way if you look at the EVF closely and then compare it to the back LCD, you will find that the EVF is more contrasty than the LCD. So the WYSIWYG whilst being quite good, is not yet perfect.

Cheers, Fabian
