One annoyance with my Z6 (at F/W 2.01) is that the camera will switch from the touchscreen to the viewfinder waaaay too easily when the touchscreen is tilted out. Even with plenty of ambient light, and nothing (like an eye) covering or near the eyepiece, the screen goes blank in favor of the viewfinder.

I have that same issue with my Z6 once in a while. However, we can always lock the display either to the back LCD (touch screen) or the EVF, thus turning off the auto switch. There is even a dedicated button on the left side of the EVF (when you are looking at the camera from behind) to toggle that functionality.
