Thanks... I now see reference to this in other posts... wow. not sure how I missed them before I bought this. That would have been a deal breaker. I video outdoor games with my kids all the time and watching through the viewfinder is ridiculous... I hope Sony provides an option for people in a future firmware update... Unless the camera just can't supply enough power for 4K and bright screen at the same time... the more I use this, the more it seems like a half-assed 4K implementation. Can't even do non-cropped sensor 4K at 30p.

this "feature" lol is actually also present on some A7 cameras as well...i doubt it will ever be remedied with a firmware change, i'm just speculating of course, but just saying i wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a fix, meaning if its deal breaker, send it back if you can, ....i have resorted to using the EVF.
