A7r III EVF vs A7 III EVF -- the latter looks much dimmer?

I just today ran across someone who had an A7 III and an A7r III, both mounted with the 24-105mm f/4 G lens and the difference in the EVF was (to me) shocking both in size and brightness, the A7 III being noticeably dimmer.

I've looked at so many videos and read articles before ordering that I can't venture a guess but I don't remember anyone mentioning the difference in EVF. The size doesn't bother me so much but the difference in brightness concerns me very much.

To be clear, this question is related to only the Eye-level Viewfinder, NOT the screen on the back of the camera.

Comments please.

Is this my imagination?

Is there a setting in the menus that could have made this difference?
