That is up to you (and your level of patience).

I wonder how inconvenient an external VF is when you are used to an integrated one.

I had one on my Pens but I only used it when doing manual focusing. Otherwise I preferred the style and shape of the EP1/EP3. I had the EM5 (up till this morning). It had replaced my EP3, but I did it for other improvements, not the built in EVF. I sold the EM5 in preparation of my (hopefully) soon arriving EP5.

If you use the EVF a lot (read for the majority of your shots) and are used to a camera with one built in, I don't think you will be very happy with the EP5 and the clip on EVF. If this is not the case, I would get the EP5 and the VF4. (BTW - I already got my VF4 and it is very, very good.)
