I have the same issues with my evf, its definetely light from the sides. I was able to work around it with a diy eye piece, but it was uncomfortable.

It's worst for me on the right side.  (Thinking back, I can't remember having a problem on the left side.)  If I can't solve it by pressing my face tightly against the eyepiece, I'll hold the camera with my right hand and reach over with my left hand to block the sun coming from the right.  It's hardly optimal, but it's worked okay on those few occasions when it's been an issue.
