That a big LCD panel would use less energy than a tiny EVF panel?

The EVF is OLED, whereas the rear screen is LCD.

OLED uses more energy than LCD, although the difference depends on on the average pixel luminance since OLED pixels are driven individually whereas LCD is driven by LED backlight(s). Also, the Z's EVF has more pixels than its LCD.

Thanks!
