Actually, most people don't use an EVF or VF at all anymore, considering how many people take images now with smartphones.

Looks easy enough to hold though, he was holding it quite a few ways and it looked sturdy.

Serious photographers still need an EVF or OVF because you can't see a damn thing when the sun shines directly on the screen.  The sun in Oz is a little stronger than most other places in the world (especially Europe) and I can tell you it's impossible to frame a shot even with well regarded LCDs.

The positive thing about the current Dp series size is that although it is brick like it still has a small form factor.  You can fit all three merrills in a small bag.  The shear width of the new quattro would make that a lot more difficult. Hence the feeling that if the IQ is extremely high, people will forgive that.
