Swap out an internal EVF for an in-built flash (I have to smirk here) and increased portability.  There are a lot of people that would exclaim that no EVF means no sale, but they're kind of forgetting that there is an ENTIRE generation of people brought up using smartphones as a camera that have no EVF and have no experience using an EVF.  It is second nature to use that big frickin' screen and hold the camera out at arms length to take a photo.

There is a small problem with this. How many percent of that generation would be attracted by pseudo-retro styling that harks back to something originally designed when their parents were born? And that style actually motivated the sans-VF strategy - that's why some might find it difficult to "get it".
