Have not looked at the A7 EVF yet.. but I can tell you the NEX EVF I tried was early unusable and in that format an OVF would be too..

Yes I also did not like the NEX6/7 viewfinders...too small IMO but the A7/A7r is quite good.

There is a massive obsession with the controlled Studio IQ tests that really mean much less when REAL PHOTOGRAPHY is done.. because focus, framing, subject choice, timing, exposure, DOF choices etc. all overwhelm the Micro issues we obsess with in studio tests..

That's true The geek inside me is also guilty of pixel peeping and I need to get rid of it some day In fact I was very Happy with my A500 for 5 years and didn't even bother to check what new cameras were there as I never really "missed" anything in my photography (except for decent AEB which I missed terribly). However studio tests or not, the A7/A7r provide stunning image quality for a mirrorless camera IMO.

This is one of my favorite photos I tool of the Eiffel Tower.. because it shows something most people would walk right over.. it's a bit dark and a bit graining.. but its better than any studio noise test ever shot...

That's a great catch! You have a nice eye! One of my best shots came when we were going back from a vacation and I pulled over to a parking spot by the road after dusk. My wife said you got all the shots you wanted in the nice places...what now? However I really did want to take the shot and it became my all time favorite shot and is one of the most viewed and liked photo:
