As a left-eyed shooter:

-A6400: Miserable, my nose lives on the touchscreen and I can't line my eye up flush with the EVF, even with an aftermarket cup.

-A7C: Worse, as it inexplicably uses a viewfinder with fixed eyepiece.

-A7RIII: Much better, but my face still interacts with the joystick.

-Z7II: Fantastic, as the EVF is shifted just enough to the left to avoid nose/controls intersection.

Thanks for the rundown -- that's helpful feedback.  My primary camera is an a7Riii, and although I've certainly gotten used to it, my face does block the AF-ON button and joystick.  I've had a good experience with the X100V, so it's interesting to hear your experience with the a6400 and a7c, but then I also don't mind being up against the touchscreen (I don't use the touchscreen functionality, and it feels better than a joystick in the face!).

Very interesting to hear that feedback on the Z7II.  Nikon was the runner-up when I made my new system selection a few years back.  Maybe worth another look now that the lens line-up has progressed.   Thanks again, Brent.
