Anyone wonder why Sony debuted such a stellar viewfinder on a video-centered A7S III?

I'm just curious why Sony put their best Viewfinder to date into a video-centered camera? Most people who buy the A7SIII Are going to be using it for video. Which means, they'll likely be using the rear screen for an attached screen. Maybe I'm wrong but I just feel like most videographers aren't going to use the viewfinder, right?

It's probably safe to assume that the A7IV will have lower specs for the viewfinder to maintain a lower price point. I just would've assumed that this type of viewfinder should have been implemented on the A7RIV which is geared more towards photographers.

To be honest, I also have no idea why this bothers me so much...it just does. I'm considering the A7SIII just for that big viewfinder and new menu system (Although the menu system will likely be in the A7RIV as well).

I know a lot of people have asked, but who else is getting this camera for photography specifically?
