Polarized sunglasses :(

I'd read this in the past but just experienced the downside of polarized sunglasses with non-OLED displays.

I have an X-Pro2 and got new prescription glasses that come with polarized magnetic clip-on shades.  Blackout on the rear LCD and the EVF.  Doh!

But "Ahhh" you say... just use the hybrid OVF with the X-Pro.  That's what I thought too.  But unfortunately the overlay, which includes the all important framing lines is also non-OLED.

Not sure what to do now.  You can (inconveniently) work around it by tilting your head a bit when looking through the viewfinder.  Not sure what to do now.  I have a 2 week vacation in 2 months where I'll be outdoors everyday, undoubtedly with sunglasses.

I can 1) just live with it.  2) buy a Fuji X-T20 (which has pros and cons)  3) buy an X-T2 (don't really want to go that route)  4) look into a Sony (don't really want to do that at this time) or 5) bring my Nikon D810 (fantastic IQ, would like to avoid the size).
