Viewfinder placement for manual focusing. a7 vs a6000

Previously I was an a77 shooter and had an nex-c3 as well. Personally, I had way more fun shooting the nex-c3 with manual focus lens, and have sold my a77 in order to go completely the route of sony e-mount.

My question is, for those of you who have tried both the a7 style body and the a6000 (or nex-6/7), which one feels more natural for holding and focusing manually? I only ask because I have held the nex-6 in store and it feels strange to me having the viewfinder on the side when I am used to having it in the middle like on the a77. Is it easy to get used to? The size and resolution of the viewfinders don't matter to me. All I'm curious about is the ergonomics and which feels more natural to you.

hank you for any input!
