R5 EVF

I have been obsessing about an R5. I have a 5Div and a 7Dii for landscape and wildlife respectively. I have noticed that I have been using the 5Div much more often recently and cropping if necessary. Given there will be no 7D111 or 5Div I have been considering an R5.  I MUCH prefer an OVF over EVF but knew I needed to look through the R5. I managed to go to a camera shop today, now shops are open again, and it was not as bad as I feared, but I cannot say I like it. They only had one lens, the kit 24-105. It was OK at 24mm but flickered at 105mm. The shop has fluorescent lights which may have made it more noticeable.

Is it even worse at 400 or 500mm? Everything else appeals, but I am not sure I could get used to the juddering it seemed to do when moved to another subject. It was on the smooth setting. The only other alternative would be to buy another 5Div, but it is already a 5 year old camera.

Advice, please?
