Because it's a mirrorless camera : MIRRORLESS. There's no mirror, so technically you can't get an OVF since there's no mirror that will reflect what the lens see

Then how does the MIRRORLESS Fuji Xpro1 (with hybrid EVF/OVF) work?

I saw picture of MIRRORLESS Fuji Xpro1. the VF is all the way at the Top left side, not behind the lens, as in most of DSLRs, so it says Hybrid, it cant be Optical VF

It is not possible to have a OVF showing you a 'through the lens' (TTL) view without also having a mirror
