You have to like corner EVFs which I do not like myself especially being left eye dominant in addition to the nuisance of having to deploy and them pull them back. The original G5X Mk is an extremely comfortable camera to use and having had a Sony HX90 I would not want one of these pop up EVFs myself again as a lot of time was wasted on occasions needing an extra pull to engage it back properly but the Canon may be OK in this respect and larger.

Something worth mentioning but it depends on people's preferences. I suppose Canon may get the auto deploy one in the next iteration if ever. I will wait for that.

Too funny. I'm a left-eye dominant glasses wearing shooter

I do love EVFs... Or OVFs, either will do but I prefer EVFs for their advantages (exposure simulation). I'm an old school DSLR-shooter so I'm hooked on some form of traditional framing even though I've relaxed a bit and use the touchscreen more frequently these days, old habit die hard (framing in an EVF/OVF).

My bigger compliant is I occasionally accidentally tap the touchscreen while EVF is engaged and have to cancel. You get used to it. Happens on my larger cameras (EOS R) too, but more frequently on the G5X Mark II if that's what you're asking.
