OVF vs EVF

I posted this in the R forum but would be interested in your views ad I think they may be different.

I love my 5Div but only like my 7Dii. I want upgrade the 7 and a few more pixels would be useful. It would be for wildlife mainly. I would prefer FF now. I am tempted to buy another 5Div but, in the absence of a 5Dv, am considering an R5. The EVF puts me off. In a big way.
I have a casual camera (M6ii), but am really not keen on the EVF. I had a short play with the R when it came out and wasn’t much more impressed then.
So, is the R5 better? In most other respects the R5 wins, but this is an important blocker.
TIA
